On the dance floor, baby!
I've decided that I need to focus on Physics again instead of Mathematics. (I watched a Science channel documentary and found out something new about black holes. It was rather embarrassing. I mean, I'm not an expert on the subject but c'mon!)

Anyway I'm reviewing my Gravitation and Cosmology text by Weinberg and he goes into Relativistic Hydrodynamics, which is a topic that just makes me shudder. The only field of Physics that I know of that has worse equations than QFT is Fluid Dynamics. I usually stay far away from anything that goes beyond the Bernoulli equation in Introductory Physics. But I suppose it's time I grew a pair and got down to it.

Does anyone know of a textbook with a decent description of Newtonian level Fluid Dynamics?
