Format: Paperback
Ellis is really good in writing this book he writes in a style that is easy to understand many technical jargons are explained. Its also has good accessibility in that you don't have to read the book from cover to cover you can skip chapters or just read chapters you need. This is ideal for the beginner or the amateur who needs it just to look up some information. Great book!

Any student who finds themselves using FORTRAN (I was using 90) should have a book like this especially at this price, all the other books that I need for my Astrophysics degree cost 50+ generally so very pleased to have this.

excellent book for learning new features of fortran 90 20 Oct. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Well written detailed coverage of Fotran 90. Clear explanations of obsolete F77 features and other features of the language to avoid using and why. I would recommend this text to anyone wishing to learn F90 from scratch or upgrading from F77. Good example programs, code fragment and many programming exercises with solutions. I am now enjoying the use of derived types and generic functions as well as extending the intrinsic functions.

A very carefully written textbook and reference. 28 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is one of the best books on Fortran 90 programming. Its major strength is that the information in the book is reliable and correct. It may especially be very useful for experienced FORTRAN 77 programmers. I think every Fortran programmer must have a copy of this text in his/her library.

Good explanations but too pedantic 17 April 2001
By biochemprof - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book explains very well the features of Fortran90 programming, but it is way too pedantic. I would have preferred a more concise, O'Reilly style of writing. Many examples of very simple code are provided to illustrate points - I found them to distract from the points being made. The book could also have benefited from a more Object Oriented focus as many of the new features of F90 over F77 are attempts to move Fortran in this direction.
The only book you may need for F90 13 Nov. 2008
By Bharat K. Medasani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I learnt F90 from this and it is very good book, which tells you good programming practices. It teaches you how to write proper structured F90 programs and how to avoid the pitfalls of F77 or fortran langauge in general. And I saw lot of people including one of my professors writing bad to horrible F77 programs. Having worked as a professional C coder before, also helped me to appreciate this book.
Pendantic, and that's A Bad Thing. 6 Mar. 2012
By Windscion - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author seems to think that if a job cannot be done efficiently using a certain programming style, then the programmer is a bad person for wanting to do that problem.

If, on the other hand, you work for a living and want useful information and not condescending attitude, try the books by Adams and Brainerd.
