With great attention to detail, author and editors have worked together to ensure that the presentation is both informative and visually pleasing. This makes the series a stand-out among books, especially on technical topics. Just because a topic is complex does not mean it has to be explained in the same way. Simplified, expanded, and carefully developed building blocks are at the core of the book. This edition also includes an entertaining but informative running narrative at the end of each chapter, in the format of a comic strip.
