""It is well written and the examples are carefully chosen to motivate or exemplify the topic at hand."" -J.R. Burke, CHOICE Magazine , September 2005
""[The] mixture of linear algebra, geometry, and numerical aspects is very interesting and will probably stimulate the students."" -Yves Felix, Bulletin of the Belgian Mathematical Society, December 2005
""I picked up this book with the thought, 'oh, another linear algebra text.' I was pleasantly surprised, upon examination, that it is not just another one. The standard linear algebra material is presented with good motivating stories, illustrations and examples."" -S. Swaminathan, CMS Notes, February 2006
""This book covers all the fundamental topics of linear algebra ... It is also an inspiring book for pure mathematicians who would like to learn more about applications of linear algebra ... a useful source of many nice examples."" -EMS, December 2006
""Das Buch [ist] eine einmalige und wertvolle Ergänzung zur bestehenden reichen Literatur zur Linearen Algebra."" -Internationale Mathematische Nachrichten, April 2007"
