Although there is much valuable material in this book, and although Dr. Roberts certainly knows a great deal about the various subjects considered, the text does not at all fulfill her stated objectives: "To emphasize fundamentals rather than complicated dogmas and rules, for students and novices rather than specialists in the field." On the contrary, the presentation is quite detailed; for the non-specialist the subject certainly is complicated; and, since the points of view are only rarely documented with references to the source of the information presented, one must either accept the author's dogmatic statements or ignore them entirely.
