    The general impression of the book:

    I do not think highly of the textbook. Some chapters were better than others in the completeness and clarity of the information. Some other chapter were circular, and a couple of times, clearly, lazily, contradictory.

    Organization of the book:

    It is well organized.

    Negative aspects of the book:

    Poor editing - contradictory statements.
