Editorial Reviews

`Because of its new results and techniques and its comprehensive coverage of the classification of homotopy types of simply-connected complexes with cells in only four consecutive dimensions and dual case, the book is necessary reading for graduate students and researchers in the field and forothers who may wish to use results on homotopy classification in other areas such as classification of manifolds.'Zentrall fur Mathematik, vol. 857, 1997
