Every chapter is filled with text, text, and more text. Most of it is erroneous and doesn't need to be there.
Finding equations and definitions are nigh impossible as the chapters don't really follow a congruent path. A concept might be introduced and then five pages later it is finally defined and an equation given. It makes learning this material without outside help rather difficult.
