Definitely a book to start with for beginners.
Gabriel's writing style is very easy to read and understand and the examples found in each chapter are immediately useful for all sorts of applications.
If Svennerberg had custom-written a book for me taking into account exactly what I already do and don't know, it would have been much thinner.
