Mr. Vasonyi has written a book that contains something for everyone: the commercial programmer, the scientific programmer; the beginner and the experienced alike. Where then does the author fail? I found the exposition not unlike that of a cookbook?going from simple recipe to difficult recipe, giving each in detail but avoiding the general to emphasize the specific. When you have finished studying it, you may know all sorts of good recipes but that doesn't necessarily make you a chef.
