"This is the second, improved edition of the only existing monograph devoted to real-analytic functions, whose theory is rightly considered in the preface 'the wellspring of mathematical analysis.' Organized in six parts, [with] a very rich bibliography and an index, this book is both a map of the subject and its history. Proceeding from the most elementary to the most advanced aspects, it is useful for both beginners and advanced researchers. Names such as Cauchy-Kowalewsky (Kovalevskaya), Weierstrass, Borel, Hadamard, Puiseux, Pringsheim, Besicovitch, Bernstein, Denjoy-Carleman, Paley-Wiener, Whitney, Gevrey, Lojasiewicz, Grauert and many others are involved either by their results or by their concepts."
"Bringing together results scattered in various journals or books and presenting them in a clear and systematic manner, the book is of interest first of all for analysts, but also for applied mathematicians and researchers in real algebraic geometry."
