Leaving aside the actual content of the textbook, the text is riddled with typos and awkward grammatical constructs. There is also inconsistent use of font effects and acronyms, and editorial notes appear to have been left in the body of the text ("stet", "the acronym is the name"). All of these mistakes appear in the first 30 pages! The slides that are used as an accompaniment also have their share of errors. Coming back to the content, there are several mistakes in the worked examples, there are instances where a diagram has an identical image twice rather than having the two different images that it is supposed to, and there are symbols missing from tables and text. The result is that I find myself questioning a lot of what I'm reading, regardless of technical accuracy - and it should be accurate given that Wayne Wolf is a competent and experienced engineer and academic. However, it is ridiculous that there should be so many errors in any textbook, let alone a Second Edition with a ~£50 price tag.

You might say that my own grammar is a bit off - but at least I haven't charged you £46 for reading this review.
