This book has a lots of clever examples, and intelligent entertaining explanation. But for my taste it is too wordy, and too costly. Many students today will not read in detail a lengthy discussion of any topic, and that makes this book, welll written as it is, seem difficult to use as a text. I can see a bright motivated student curling up profitably with this work at home or in the library, but where are such students found? I also wonder in this age of self prepared text, composed on a computer, if there may have been a minimum of editing? it has that long winded feel that professors indulge in.
