From the reviews:

“This book is a collection of biomechanics locomotion papers, broadly grouped into ‘those that swim’, and ‘those that fly’. … Engineering-based research is strongly threaded throughout the book. … The variety of research being carried out in this sub-section of biomechanics is fairly represented and for those wishing to find out some of the recent advances in the field, this is an excellent starting point.” (Anna Carruthers, Aeronautical Journal, June, 2011)
