It is really good news that

*J. Bewersdorff*'s successful book has now, after the enthusiastic reviews of the previous three German editions (1998;

Zbl 0918.00003, 2001;

Zbl 0983.00007 and 2003;

Zbl 1041.00005), been translated into English to reach the worldwide readership it deserves. David Kramer has done an excellent job by correcting and improving some minor flaws during the process of translation.
