"The author does a great job of making this easy and enjoyable to read. This can be a very dry subject and one that I find difficult at some points, as the students tend to get bogged down in all the terminology, math and potential depth of the subject. The author makes it more interesting while sprinkling in some of the history, and explaining it so that anyone can understand."
