From the reviews:
"The authors must be congratulated ... . The book contains many examples, exercises and problems. ... Many technical details are relegated to appendices, making the main text highly readable. ... There are a large number of nice figures and illustrations, which complement the text very well. ... I feel that this book would be a valuable addition to a personal or departmental library. ... I believe that this book has the potential to become a standard text in the ... field of non-linear dynamics." (Sanjay Puri, International Journal of Robust and Nonlinear Control, Vol. 15 (11), 2005)
"The book is an extensive treatise of nonlinear dynamical systems with emphasis on the concepts of chaos, integrability and patterns. ... the book contains numerous examples and exercises divided in two groups by their difficulty." (Peter Polacik, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1038 (13), 2004)
"The book gives a comprehensive introduction to the different fields in nonlinear dynamics, such as chaos, fractals, integrability and soliton theory. It also includes a large number of interesting applications. ... Each chapter and the appendix include a number of exercises. ... the book can be highly recommended for beginners in these fields since it provides a good survey of the different fields in nonlinear dynamics." (W.-H. Steeb, Mathematical Reviews, 2004 d)
"Undoubtedly, the best survey text on Nonlinear Dynamics available today. ... the survey is carefully balanced, with detail and clarity, to enable students and researchers from other fields to learn the salient tools. For advanced undergraduate students and graduate research students looking for just one book in Nonlinear Dynamics, here is the one to get. ... It is precisely the book that has been needed to provide students with the fundamental knowledge across the landscape of Nonlinear Dynamics ... ." (B I Henry, The Physicist, Vol. 40 (4), 2003)
