Thanks to a theorem of Brock on the comparison ofWeil-Petersson translation distances and hyperbolic volumes of mapping tori for pseudo- Anosovs, we prove that the entropy of a surface automorphism in general has linear bounds in terms of a Gromov norm of its mapping torus from below and an inbounded geometry case from above. We also prove that the Weil- Petersson translation distance does the same from both sides in general. The proofs are in fact immediately derived from the theorem of Brock, together with some other strong theorems and small observations.
