This should be a very useful addition to bookshelves of those who work in the field. For non-specialists who only need one book on the subject, it may be just the right thing. And it should be a very good teaching text.
Many thanks to all of our contributors.

What about those yet to enter the field; do you have a reading list for prospective students?
