All the positive reviews here must have never seen a good textbook in their life - otherwise they would not have given 5 stars to this one. A textbook ought to be read easily, page to page. But this one is loaded with subtle language errors which make it difficult for the text to flow, and more importantly it provides no original material - there is no insight that this book gives that you cannot find anywhere else. It is not structured well and it provides limited explanations on why things are the way they are. In the matricies section, it doesn't state even once what matricies are. And it's expensive.
Sadly, there is just no better book out there.
