The Henderson's book is a superb pedagogic text. The chapters 1 to 5 are superbly written. They are easily understandable by any student and engineer.These five chapters are outstanding. Unfortunately the following chapters are in need of some updates. For example, the sections on spillwaydesign (pp. 180-191), energy dissipators (pp. 214-227), culverts (pp. 258-264), roll waves (pp. 342-344). More importanly the chapters on sediment transport (Chap. 10) and part of the physical modelling (Chap. 11) are really outdated. The interested readers should be advised to consider seriously some modern books : 'The hydraulics of open channel flow: an introduction' (Butterworth-Heinemann, 1999) and 'The hydraulics of open channel flow' (ASCE, 1998). The former is a solid textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as professional engineers. The second title is more a reference handbok. The main drawback of Henderson's book is the lack of revision and its unavailability in many parts of the world because it is out-of-print since two decades.
