"This is a well-written introduction to convexity and to a variety of its applications. It is written in a clear style, reader-friendly, and with great care. This book, which requires only elementary prerequisites and provides many exercises, is well suited as a text for an introductory course on convexity and selected applications." - Zentrallblatt for Mathematik, Band 835/96.
