I think there is no better way to introduce into the topic. Everything is explained and nothing is left out. It is very easy to follow the explanations and derivations. I have the kindle version and it displays nicely on the kindle (which is not the case with some other books).
Perfect delivery, very fast. The book is really good, it explains many things even if sometimes not so much in details, and you must look for it by your own. The pratical exercises are a bit poor..great overlook though..
