As an introduction to a huge & fascinating field (at least for me), you can't really beat this. Its main market is university students, so perhaps not a fun or bedtime read. However, the explanation is really clear and the examples and analysis are spot on. What's more, the reading list directs you to readily available titles. As your starter pack, pretty good value.
