Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi!

I am curious about two books which seem really great, but somehow I became sceptical of the authors. Are they credible and does the books make any sense?

They are "Natural Biodynamics" and "Applied Differential Geometry: A Modern Introduction".

One reason of my (paranoid) suspicions is that I can't find any information about the persons other than the works they have done, i.e links to the books. The other reason is a document I downloaded which doesn't make much sense to me:
(The link is to a PDF document, do right click and save if you want to download it, or left click if your browser can view PDF)

Can anyone confirm the author(s) as credible? If so, he (they) seem incredible! :D

It seems like the man is employed by the Australian government, so that could be a reason for the lack of biography. He's probably somewhat of a genious and I feel a little stupid for questioning the legimity of his work.. Will read the books and see if I learn something. :D

Having briefly read through the .pdf it appears his work involves understanding the geometric dynamics of crowd behavior.
