Something that >discusses axial flow, bypass, ramjet, et al.? I can very much recommend the book "The Jet Engine" by Rolls Royce. The book is quite easy to read, and covers all topics in detail. The last couple of chapters are full of formulas etc., so that might be a little more difficult. I used it as background reading for my ATPL study and found especially the very nice graphics useful. It costs 25 British pounds, which is around $40. (good value for money). Only drawback: emphasis on Rolls Royce engines. I don't know if it's available anywhere in the US (I'm from The Netherlands, my dad brought it from England). You might be able to contact the Public Relations Department of Rolls-Royce in Derby England (sorry, I haven't got the address). Greetings, Daan Vlaskamp The Netherlands.
