Ian Chivers and Jane Sleightholme are the joint owners of comp-fortran-90 which is a lively forum for the exchange of technical details of the Fortran language. Ian is the editor of the ACM Fortran Forum, and Jane and Ian have both been involved in the Fortran standardisation process. The authors have been teaching and supporting Fortran and related areas for over 40 years and their latest book reflects the lessons that have been learnt from this.
"The book contains 36 chapters and five appendices. Each chapter is sharply focused. The presentation is clear and concise throughout. ... This book could be an excellent choice for an instructor-led course in introductory programming, and not just for scientists and engineers. It can also be used by anyone, with or without prior programming experience, to learn Fortran through self-study." (Edgar R. Chavez, Computing Reviews, computingreviews.com, May, 2016)
