Performance by Design
I am very pleased to be the editor of record for Performance by Design, by naval architect Donald L. Blount. He recently described the book by saying, “I wanted to recharacterize my draft from a technical history to a hydrodynamic technology leap forward from “Original Speed”. Chapter 1 is a reprise of “Original Speed” followed by eight chapters of science, my skewed views of science, a few things I don’t understand, definitions of things on which no two naval architects will agree, design criteria which have been my friend, and guidance on design procedures embracing technology.”
As well as leading the editing effort, I am also designing the book, and will be handling most of the marketing for the volume which should be out by Summer 2014.
