From the book reviews:
"Each chapter contains a series of exercises as well as a number of notes aimed at giving further hints as to how the various items in the book are interrelated and, furthermore, at placing the material in the literature. ... The book is a timely and courageous attempt to make accessible a flourishing research area to a wider audience in the form of a research monograph/textbook and as such it is very welcome." (Johannes Huebschmann, Jahresbericht der Deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung, Vol. 116, 2014)
"This book is an excellent presentation of Poisson geometry, its applications and related topics. ... This book is suitable for those who have a solid foundation of differential geometry and Lie algebras. The reader will understand why Poisson geometry is such an interesting and important subject." (Zhuo Chen, zbMATH, Vol. 1284, 2014)
"This book provides a comprehensive introduction to Poisson structures. ... Exercises are given at the end of each chapter ... to help readers understand the basic theory. ... This is a nice introductory book for both entry level graduate students and advanced researchers who are interested in the subject." (Xiang Tang, Mathematical Reviews, August, 2013)
"The book under review deals with very exciting (and current) material presented from a fascinating vantage point and should be welcomed by any scholar whose work touches upon the matters ... . its thirteen chapters are peppered with sets of exercises and each chapter comes equipped with supplemental notes that go a bit beyond the text, introduce some historical material, and point to other relevant sources." (Michael Berg, MAA Reviews, November, 2012)
