Review quote

"Overall, I found the book very nice to read and easy to follow. All major aspects of Maple that a novice to intermediate user would come across are covered."
- Laurent Bernard, Maplesoft, Inc.

"The book is eminently readable with a good narrative style and a good blend of didactic exposition followed by the relevant Maple commands. What is especially instructive is the numerous times alternative ways are used to produce equivalent answers showing the versatility of Maple and leaving the choice of method to the reader who attempts similar problems."
- David Hodgkinson, University of Liverpool
