The mathematics behind the principles in this book are quite correct, and it is a great approach to computing exterior ballistics results.
The presentation however is awful, the author does not take
a systematic approach, uses lots of very unclear engineering approximations without explanation, uses imperial units throughout without explicitly stating what units he is using half the time. I have a degree in maths and physics and it took me a while to figure it out.
This is not a book for a beginner in the field, not because it deals with very difficult subject matter, but because you need a pretty good understanding of what is going on to make sense of it!
