This is a required text for class, but almost no one in the class is using it. It is BORING with minimal conceptual content. The author skips steps in just about everything he explains. Symbols are reused or left unexplained. The author sometimes says things "will become clear later" and never comes back to it. There are also few examples. It's just another dry textbook written by someone who is clearly a math geek..
The worst part is, this is supposed to be one of the better texts on the subject. This subject COULD be fun if the textbook were well written, but it seems everyone who (supposedly) understands it couldn't explain it to save their life. May have to write a textbook myself. There is certainly a need for a good one.
