The approach taken by the author is good, but something must have gone wrong in the review process. Many of the examples are solved incorrectly in the book. Also, there are a lot of typos and some paragraphs are out of place. There is also a lot of repetition of very simple processes such as manipulation of rows to solve matrices. Some of this space would have been better used to give a fuller explanation of some of the more complex operations that the book presents. I can make more detailed comments to the author and/or publisher for the purpose of improving the next edition. I was able to get a pretty good bit of information out of the book, but it did require a math background due to the apparent editing problems.
