"The writing style is excellent. Roberts' original text has always been one of my favorites and the new edition maintains the same high standards. Roberts and Tesman reads as well as the original, I'm pleased to say. The explanations are detailed enough that the students can follow the arguments readily. The motivating examples are a truly strong point for the text. No other text with which I am familiar comes even close to the number of applications presented here." — John Elwin, San Diego State University
"I began using this book last fall in an undergraduate course. I used it because I believe it is one of the best books on the market for the purpose of this class. The text is written clearly throughout. The book is very well suited for a junior/senior course consisting of mathematics and computer science majors." — Joachim Rosentahal, University of Notre Dame
"The new material in this reviewed manuscript makes this new edition even stronger than the old text. I love the inclusion of extra material on cryptography and code. The writing style is clear and straightforward. The examples and clarity of explanations are quite good." — Edward Allen, Wake Forest University
