Revising a classic is not to be undertaken lightly. Therisks are great, as is the labour. The original authors and theirnew co-author, Hitomi Masuhara, are to be congratulated on theirachievement. I recommend this new edition highly as a uniquecontribution to the field and urge you to buy a copy. (Folio, 1 September 2014)
