Good for It's Purpose Sep 6, 2008
Exactly what the title says - concise. Would be a quick reference to give one a basic understanding/overall view of a term or concept. This would be a good starting point or jumping off point for further study/research.
Decent, reliable book Aug 10, 2008
I can recommend this book, especially as a place to start and to get an initial feel and importance for various terms. I've actually used it ato look up a couple dozen words so far.
