Reviews

'It is very clear and well considered. This is certainly a book one could use with students, partly because it's not cluttered with too many examples and exceptions but concentrates on the core and then reinforces things with its exercises. These are very helpful, as are the answers.' – Martin Coyle, Cardiff University, UK
