Editorial Reviews

"The major concepts are covered well and the additional details provide an extended challenge for those students who are particularly interested or have the right background to truly grasp the more complex concepts. This is really one of the best textbooks I have used for any of the courses Ihave taught." --Rachel L. Walters, University of Florida
