Warning, this book has multiple issues that make me highly recommend not purchasing.  I own the book and feel it is so poorly written and the ideas are so poorly described that I do not feel this information should be passed on to anyone, thus when I am done with my class I will burn this book.  Here are some of the issues with the book: Poorly defines variables and equations; Graphs and figures are poorly described and detailed; Example values that are given in the book are not explained or the method of calculation is not given; Examples are poorly described, numbers are given with no definition or description or where they came from; Variables have multiple meanings in the same example; Examples are explained out of order from what is taught in the text; Equations are poorly organized and described; Questions at end of chapter use variable not described in the chapter; Units are missing from many numbers, causing confusion of what they are; Book makes assumptions about the reader that might not be true; Book includes notes that are unpublished or not peer-reviewed; Adds unnecessary variables; There are not enough numerical examples to demonstrate ideas/points equations. Some suggestions to improve this book: add about 40+ pages and separate equations and examples from the text, fully describe parts of the equation and how they interact and relate; Have numerical examples for different problems. I have only read about 1/3 of the book so far and have found these issues.  USE ANOTHER BOOK!
