A well designed book, easy to read but comprehensive enough for the students. The best aspect is the quantity of worked examples with appropriate commentaries, and the clarity of explanations. The descriptions of the practical aspects to the course are also well covered and clearly illustrated. The points for development would be the need for specific definitions of key concepts, maybe as a glossary or in boxes in the appropriate chapters, and some more challenging questions at the end of each chapter. At the moment it is good but needs supplementing with other resources for questioning the more able. Linking practical questions to the chapters at the end would be desirable too. -- Dr Esther Garcia-Rodriguez * Abigail Lambert *
