Can anyone recommend books for Fluid Mechanics and Waves.
I don't want a book that requires high amount of maths but a book that strengthens your concepts and thought provoking problems. Thanks

That's tricky most decent fluids texts use tensors.
You may like Tritton's "Physical Fluid Dynamics" http://www.amazon.com/PhysicalDynam...7013033&sr=84 Segel's "Mathematics applied to Continuum Mechanics" is available as a Dover text, and is quite good the math is also very approachable. For a impressively good read with *no* math, I recommend Vogel's "Life in Moving Fluids" http://www.amazon.com/LifeMovingFl...7013200&sr=81
