    Hope it's better than the first edition

    I had a class in which we used the first edition of this book. Unfortunately, the instructor relied heavily on the book, and unfortunately, the book sucks. I did well in the class because I was already familiar with the concepts we studied. If I had to depend on this book, I'd have failed. I can't describe how poorly written, outdated, monotonous, repetitious, and JUST PLAIN WRONG this book is.
