From the reviews of the first edition:
"This book contains 17 chapters devoted to the use of statistical mechanical methods in areas not belonging to physics and also a few which do belong to physics. Each chapter is a nicely written tutorial presentation of the problem and of the numerical techniques used to solve it. ... Each of these chapters can be used as a concise introduction ... ." (M. Baus, Physicalia, Issue 6, 2002)
"This book is a different style of computational physics text, rather more like the conference proceedings than the usual undergraduate text. ... The result then is quite a pleasing survey of current topics in computational statistical physics. ... For the lecturer this is a very attractive resource for project length problems in a computational physics course for higher undergraduate or early graduate level students. For graduate students it is a good survey of modern statistical physics problems that lend themselves to numerical treatment." (G. P. Morriss, The Physicist, Vol. 39 (3), 2002)
