    Great Book

    I think this book was very good. I felt the reading was easy to follow. While the problems were challenging while doing them I learned a great deal.

    Horrible Book - Do Not Buy

    This book is confusing as heck. And this is so because the author tries to be all pretty and thinks that it is more important to write a dictionary than a textbook. What's worse, the notation is applied inconsistently and when new variables are introduced, they are not well-defined. That is to say, the physical quantity they represent and the units are not specified. Plus, the problems are very hard.
