This book is a must. I am a teacher at Universidad Nacional de Ingenieria, and this book is one of the texts I use. I recommend it everywhere. It is easy to understand and comprehensive for all levels. I mean, it is useful for the beginners and also for graduate students. Maybe it needs a spanish translation. It is unfair that for most of my students the book is hard to read because of the language.
