This is a poorly written book. Everything is in pieces. In reads like the authors have not fully digested the robust optimization landscape. They do not make much attempt to slowly build up the theory, and provide easy to follow examples. They stick to the abstract whenever they can.

The books addresses key topics, but treatment and formulations of the problems are difficult to follow. It looks like a collection of the authors' papers.

Well, before spelling comments about this book, I'll talk about myself and why I bought it. I'm a civil engineer, actually studying for master's degree in hydraulic engineering, working with the creation of and model to use robust optimization for operation of hydroelectric power plants. Unfortunately there is few books that deals with robust optimization. I thought that this one would have a more practical view to apply this method. But I was mistaken.

The book is indeed good in mathematical theory AND ONLY for that. There are few examples to illustrate the techniques of robust optimization, and most of this content discusses mathematical formulations. This isn't very useful for engineers, economists, biologists and any other profession that isn't used to pure mathematical formulations.
