"In my opinion, this textbook is the market leader at this level. I have received consistently good feedback from students regarding this book. The set of worked examples in this book remains to this day one of it best selling points. The introduction of the PowerWorld material in the latest editions was a good move. To me this is a mature text; it is free from factual errors and omissions. The examples are plenty and good. I like the examples which are carried throughout a given chapter. It has great worked out examples. It is well-written and appropriately concise."
"The book has a good flow and a good pace. The material is very well written academically."

Bang for the buck: If you want hands-on activities with PowerWorld, this book provides good narrative to the examples that come with the free version of the software. If you need to write your own code, Grainger & Stevenson is more compact and focused.
