Reviews

@qu:"This book is a collection of chapters written by a number of well-respected experts in their chosen fields... Each chapter serves as an introduction to its chosen topic, allowing one to gain a good overview of an area of research... In general, I found this book to be well structured and infomative... I have no doubt that photocopies of individual chapters will find their way into many private reference collections." @source:--PERCEPTION
