The contents of this book are well suited to the title. The book is concise. It contains a great deal of information, and pricewise it is certainly a bargain per topic covered. The 17 chapters are grouped into three parts. The first, Elementary Linear Programming (LP), requires knowledge of elementary algebra. There is occasional use of matrix notation, but only Chapter 7, the last in the first part, involves significant use of matrix algebra.
