Although Norman Friedman's books tend to cater to the hardcore naval enthusiast, "Submarine Design and Development" is pretty readable and concise. The book offers an interesting insight into the evolution of submarine design, technology, and tactics in the 20th century, detailed enough to keep the interest of the serious submarine buff, but not so overwhelming as to deter beginners. The first half focuses on the problems facing the submarine designer, an overview of submarine warfare in the two world wars, and the rapid growth of submarine design and technology during the Cold War. The second half is the real meat of the book and focuses on submarine propulsion, sonar and communications systems, underwater maneuvering, and modern anti-submarine warfare.
