"The editors, Bill Johnson and Joram Lindenstrauss have continued the steady hand they applied to the first volume to this second and final part of the Handbook (....) it is clear that these two volumes will become a standard and important reference for both graduate students and more experienced Banach space researchers. The Handbook is a must for any serious mathematics library and highly recommended for researchers in this and neighbouring fields."
