The messages are kept simple and easy to follow. There is primarily a focus on important concepts which are well explained … this has the making of an excellent introductory text.” – Mark Teale, University of Lincoln, UK   “I was delighted to see the Table of Contents. A book I have been searching for! I like the approach, with a broad focus [and] the up-to-date focus is appreciated.” – Martin Hoffen, Oxford Brookes University, UK   “There are very few books on this subject and none that I know which have this breadth of coverage” – Nigel Foot, Aston University, UK
