I have been reading a lot of Fortran 90 books, and I haven't found a singol one which isn't either incomplete, extremely confused,or irrelevant. Only exception being the thick ANSI reference.
What you need to know, when using FORTRAN 90, is first of all, in my opinion, how to use modules and internal subprograms, notably the way variables are shared or kept private, while using them.
Do you have to use long lists of parameters in a call to a subroutine or none at all? Here is where you may start getting confused, but here is also where f90 is so very different from f77.
The book of Kerrigan makes a great job in being both a reference with a good index, and a guided tutorial.
The only drawback lies in the use of complicated and long codes to explain the usage of some of the new features, e.g linked lists. You will probably need to skip all of them, if you've got work to be done by the end of the day...
Were it not for this, the book would deserve a five star.Still, this is a book I'd recommend you to keep close when writing your f90 codes...
Too bad it is currently out of print.
