I've read all of J.E. Bowles' books to date. In my view, his works all give too many 'instant' answers without providing the underlying assumptions. This is the same college professor who opined, 'Personal computers will never be used to solve serious engineering problems.' (1982 - Civil Engineering Magazine.) You would be better served buying Ronald Scott's book.
