"I found this book to be user friendly and quite practical. Handy mnemonics appear throughout the book to help readers recall essential concepts, and the author goes to great lengths to tailor information to his audience so that it is not overwhelming. Case examples are productive, and though some detail is omitted for the sake of brevity, they remain effective in highlighting important components. Overall, this is a book I will recommend to those who are new to the field."
