Great textbook! One of the few that I've actually enjoyed reading. Very educational and easy to read. Usually when I read textbooks I find it hard to read continuously for long periods of time. Thankfully, I didn't have that problem this time. I was able to get through several chapters in a couple of hours and can actually say I learned a lot.
Who wants to bet I never finish this now that class is over? But it is well-written. We'll give it a couple of days ...

If only the class had lasted a couple more days, I would have finished this. Maybe some day.
Not a bad read as far as textbooks go.
