Favorite Rheology Definition

My favorite rheology definition comes from Transport Phenomena Volume 1, by Bird, Armstrong, and Hassager.  They write
...rheology includes Newtonian fluid mechanics at one end of the spectrum of subject material, and Hookean eleasticity at the other.  The region in between concerns the deformation and flow of all sorts of gunky and gooey materials. 
(Page 11)

Update --> fixed a typo
