Joel Land
The book is needlessly dense, and I say that because I have seen much more difficult subject matter presented in much more edifying ways. The author makes use of minimally useful examples to clarify his exhaustive lists of blandly defined topics. I never once finished a chapter and felt enlightened, only weighed down by the heady formulas, ridiculous charts, and eye-shriveling boredom of the author's approach.

While I'm sure the break-neck pace of the course didn't help with my appreciation here,
As said before, this book is an additional reference book, not something you sit would become engaged due to the nature of the author's writing.
The book has great content but is a boring read. Perhaps it is more useful as a reference book than a book you'd read cover to cover.
Waaay too ivory tower.
