4.0 out of 5 stars Classic book June 14, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the classic book to learn the subject. It was recommended to me by others to quickly find answers to many questions that the beginner usually encounters. The book did its job well: I found the answers -- both theoretical and practical. The author stood at the very beginning of the subject, which makes the content solid and logical.
