Erich Steiner, Honorary University Fellow and former senior lecturer at the University of Exeter, UK
Review(s) from previous edition"It seems well suited both for its stated purpose and as a "brush-up" book for undergraduates, graduate students, and others. The mathematics are carried out briskly and with very little dressing ... there is much material to cover here and it works well through Steiner's particularly lucid presentation. The notation is standard and clear ... I am impressed with this book, I am sure that it will remain open on my desk and will become well worn in short order.
