The style is concise...many a reader will be grateful for the list of more extensive reviews given at the end of every chapter...the study of the book is eased by cross-referencing and the comprehensive index at the end of the book. Last but not least the book is enriched by biological sketches and anecdotes provided at the end of some sections. Zentralblatt Math, Volume 1087 (2006/13) Helmut Rumpf (Wien) (Wien)
