Bad flow, list of references
on November 3, 2010
The book proceeds mostly as theorem, proof, theorem, proof, but the proofs are incomplete. Many of the proofs simply cite a reference, I do not consider that a proof at all.
Nearly every paragraph cites multiple references, and claims the topic is outside the scope of the book and the reader should refer to some other book. It seems that most everything the book covers is in some way or another "out of the scope" of the book.
The flow is incoherent. Chapters 1 and 2 frequently cite figures and sections in chapter 4 and beyond.
