Wonderful Book  March 14, 2011

The authors made a really good job. The examples are very good and it is very easy to understand even the hard topics. I never read a book that was clearer than this one. Also while the book is rather theoretical, it contains so much real case studies and interesting facts that the reader keeps his motivation from the start to the end of the book. The purchase was nice and the book was in a good condition. Thanks a lot.
