The way concepts are explained, the style of writing and the clarity is exceptional. This book unlike most other books is to be read sequentially, not as a reference book. Everything flows as it should to reinforce ideas.

This book by Iver Wahl is written in a language and style that is original and thoroughly cohesive. His style of writing is almost like attending a lecture on the subject of structures. The book is also thoughtfully illustrated.
