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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Book 20 Mar 2014
By Ste987
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent book for learning new features of fortran 90 20 Oct 2000
By A Customer - Published on
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very carefully written textbook and reference. 28 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good explanations but too pedantic 17 April 2001
By biochemprof - Published on
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.
2.0 out of 5 stars Pendantic, and that's A Bad Thing. 6 Mar 2012
By Windscion - Published on
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.
2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Intro to Fortran book 8 Nov 2010
By MSE fanatic - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Positives- Has all the neccesary information to begin programming in FORTRAN.

Negatives- Too much text to for explaining such a simple programming language. Examples are incomplete and useless. Not a good reference text. I suggest using Intro to FORTRAN 90 for Engineers and Scientist by Larry Nyhoff.
