Do not select this book. The information in this book that is accurate, or at least not known to me to be inaccurate, is vague and not very helpful. The coverage of the material is cursory and most equations don't contain units for their terms. This contrasts with the questions at the ends of the chapters which can only be answered through independent research.
While most of the contents of the book are just poorly organized, clumsily formatted and not very illuminating, a few of the sections contain information that was never true. In-particular, the book presents a complete misunderstanding of public key cryptography. It is on a very short list of books that I have sold back at a fraction of what I paid, because I am confident that I would never reference this book for any reason.
