The leisurely pace, clarity of presentation and the self consistency which is carefully preserved throughout makes it ideal for graduate students seeking an introduction to this branch of topological dynamics.
E. Glasner Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society
The book under review is a pleasant, leisurely account of the topics discussed. In places it reads like a novel. The author's approach to the subject might be termed `topological' as opposed to `algebraic'; he stresses the former and down-plays the latter wherever possible.
