"The second edition has greatly expanded the scope of topics beyond those in the first edition. ... the chapters are well written, and even the casual readers will find much descriptive material to enjoy. Indeed, the editors have performed a great service to the geomathematics community (and beyond) in this major update of the first edition of the Handbook."
