“This is a revision of an already excellent textbook that has a very clear way of explaining the often difficult concepts that the student needs to understand in this very technical subject area. What I particularly like is the careful way the text builds up the material in a simple style without skipping any steps. This incremental approach makes it a very useful teaching resource. The book clearly knows what it is trying to do and makes no assumption about the knowledge level of the reader. I also like the way material is presented through the use of concrete examples.”
