'A fresh and comprehensive text. It's quality work... The (flow diagrams and tables) from this book were clear and useful and able to be given to students to help rather than confuse them... The balance in this book is to be commended as a pedagogical step forward.' - Dr. Kieran Tranter, Griffith University.
