The "lecture-book" has a sequence of illustrations and formulae in the left column of each page and a script in the right column. This format allows you to read the script in conjunction with the illustrations and formulae that high­ light the main points, formulae, or examples being presented. The reader mayaiso purchase directly from the author audio-cassette tapes of each chapter. If you purchase the tapes, you may use the tape with the illustrations and formulae, ignoring the script.
