From the reviews of the second edition:
"This book is meant for beginners and does justice to its title. It features a very easy-to-follow style and is quite enjoyable to read. … I found the examples very helpful and appropriate for the audience. … Overall, I enjoyed reading the book and … interested in most of the topics and chapters. It is one of the best books available on the topic." (Amit Rudra, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (2), February, 2008)
