"Overall quality of presentation is good and the text is easy to read. Good use is made of bold fonts and the paragraphs are generally short so this reader did not ever feel overwhelmed by the information presented. Coloured boxes contain important “must know” stuff. Scattered colour images complement the text - tables and diagrams are clear." Univadis Review 143, February 2008
