"The book is great! The information is very good, as well as the content. I'm going to raid my wife's stash of wrapping paper for some supplies."
I love all your books.
This is quite a masterpiece! (Recycled Kites) is positive and encouraging as well as beautiful - I love your selection of photos and images!
Your book is fabulous, I love it. I learned a lot from the book and found it very thought provoking because every time I had a question it was answered. It was fun and it made me want to learn more. It's so excellent, well done, and well structured.

I saw your Rokkaku book on Amazon. You've really done so much to advance and enhance the beauty of our kite science and happy pastime.
I enjoyed the book greatly. I read it cover to cover in one go. I've not done any of the exercises but I thought the concepts were very well explained.
Your books are perfection.
Kite Physics is fantastic! This is a comprehensive and readable discussion covering many unknowns of kite flying... the author brings a wealth of experience and practices to fliers of all ages.

I bought the Kite Workshop Handbook and Miniature Kites books and they're both great. They provide designs and guidelines invaluable to designing educational lessons about kites.
This is awesome! Thanks so much for this resource!
