Reviews of The Flying Circus of Physics have appeared:
1. The Physics Teacher, which is a publication of the American Association of Physics Teachers:April 2007, Professor Edward Adelson of Ohio State University writes, "Because of its usefulness in exciting student interest, this book belongs in the library of everyone who teaches high school or college physics as well as in the school library." And he also writes, "It is easy for a physicist to become immeresed in this book and ignore colleagues, spouse, children, and earthquakes." You can see the full review at http://www.aapt.org/Store/description.cfm?ID=NB-50&Category=All&Type=All&Level=All&Keywords

2. Professor Hendrik Geyer in Die Burger, which is a newspaper in Suid-Afrikahttp://www.dieburger.com/Stories/Opinion/Columns/14.0.2672498534.aspx

3. Professor John Lienhard of the University of Houston has devoted one of the radio spots in his series "Engines of Our Ingenuity" to the Flying Circus. You can hear the audio and read the transcript at http://www.uh.edu/engines/epi2242.htm He talks about the very first version of the Flying Circus and mentions the new edition. He has also got a nifty photo of a fog bow. Then, click on "home" at the bottom of the page and start listening to the thousands of other radio spots he has made over the years, all excellent.

I have the privilege of narrating an audio version of TFCP for the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped of the (US) Library of Congress. It will be available to anyone qualified to hear the tapes that can be ordered via Inter-library Loan at your local library. It has been an enjoyable challenge and I hope it does justice to Jearl and his team!
