A very nice feature of Fu's work is the inclusion of some relevant topics, that are covered only briefly (or not at all) in other references. As is the case throughout the book, proofs are given for almost all results in these chapters. One should also remark that precise hypotheses are explicitly stated in most cases for each result. This shall prove very handy when using the book as a reference. -- Mathematical Reviews "Mathematical Reviews"
