User Review - nicodemo - LibraryThingI don't like this book. I find it too technical and more generally written in a really bad way. Moreover the typesetting is awful and the fonts in the formulas doesn't use the antialiasing, which of course make the book a pain even from an esthetic standpoint. Read full review
