"It is a complete and authoritative description of Fortran 90/95 and is intended for new and existing users, and all for those involved in scientific and numerical computing." --Zentralblatt Math
"Both authors are eminent scientists in the field of scientific computing and their experience shines through every page and every example." --Mathematics Today
"The book is excellent. It is written in such a way that simple programs can already be coded after the first three chapters have been read." --EMS Newsletter March 2005
"Readers who are familiar with Fortran 90/95 Explained by Michael Malcolm and John Reid will be pleased to add Fortran 95/2003 Explained, with the welcome addition of Malcolm Cohen as co-author, to their libraries. As with the previous work, this is a model of clear exposition ... Practitioners will be happy to have this important new book." --ACM Fortran Forum 14/07/2004
