From the reviews of the second edition:
"There are several major changes in this second edition ... . Many exercises have been added and several photographs of mathematicians related to harmonic functions are included. The book is a nice introduction to the fundamental notions of potential theory." (European Mathematical Society Newsletter, June, 2002)
"We warmly recommend this textbook to graduate students interested in Harmonic Function Theory and/or related areas. We are sure that the reader will be able to appreciate the lively and illuminating discussions in this book, and therefore, will certainly gain a better understanding of the subject." (Ferenc Moricz, Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, Vol. 67, 2001)
"This is a new edition of a nice textbook ... on harmonic functions in Euclidean spaces, suitable for a beginning graduate level course. ... New exercises are added and numerous minor improvements throughout the text are made." (Alexander Yu. Rashkovsky, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 959, 2001)
