I reread this over the summer and I had forgotten how much I like this book. In fact, I wish I owned a copy of it the first time I took complex analysis.
This little slim volume is in some sense an optimal solution to this problem. It covers the very basics of complex analysis in such a way that a typical engineering student
could read the book cover to cover in a short time and come away with a basic understanding of the field. The reader would then be empowered to read up on more specialized topics (e.g., the use of phasors, nyquist stabilty criterion, inverse laplace transforms)
or to apply the theory in an engineering class.
For comparison, I usually tell others that my favorite textbook on complex variables is the book by Wunsch. Although I still like Wunsch's book it has gotten fatter and thicker as it has morphed into
the current third edition. Its sheer bulk and scope might discourage the student from delving into the book who was not required to by taking a class.
Most engineers have to become "self-learners" throughout their career and books like this really help facilitate the process of lifelong learning.

There are 8 short chapters and it took me about three weeks to get through it, doing most of the exercises. At 100 pages it is very brief but I have to say that my knowledge of this area has improved vastly.
I also feel that I have a powerful tool at my disposal for working with infinite integrals and of just how well complex numbers can produce in the most counterintuitive ways extremely productive results.
