I needed some formulas for generalized hypergeometric functions. I searched for such formulas but could not find them in more traditional textbooks. All changed when I came upon this textbook by Luke. I found everything I needed in this textbook. Given my research interests on generalized hypergeometric functions, my opinion is that this book is "must have" reference for everyone working in this sub-field and, possibly, for other sub-fields of special functions, too.
