"No doubt, the great lucidity of exposition, the masterly style of writing, the broad spectrum of topics touched upon, and the purposeful, very special disposition of the subject matter make this text, together with its expected companion book(s), a very particular and outstanding enrichment of the existing textbook literature in algebraic geometry and its intimately related areas."
