Please ignore the other reviews saying you need minimal maths and that this book is an excellent read.
It is a difficult read with very little flow. Definitions and equations are presented virtually on every page with no real link between them, or indeed the reason, background and real life application for them. Examples are trivial and not really requiring the formulae presented to solve, whereas the multitude of end of chapter questions (posed at degree level) do not get worked examples which could be used to solve them. The reader of this book alone, without previous work, has no chance whatsoever of answering these. Are answers to the questions available? If not Ibelieve the questions provide no added value.
The book is however, a great door stop. It provides a valuable compendium of formulae and definitions. Not a lot else though.
