Well it is comprehensive, illustrates with data through 2005, discusses a number of modern terms, but, like the texts I studied years ago, it doesn't use evem the elementary calculus and algebra concepts that are taught in high school these days -- derivative, integral, max, min, slope, solving f(x)=g(x).
It could be an easier read if it used these ideas in addition to the graphic methods it does use well.
The biases of the author are almost painfully obvious right from the beginning, but he explains theory well and provides good (if aged) examples.
Very good condition that exceeded what they said it would in the description.
