Reviews for An Introduction to Numerical Methods and Analysis
“This is an excellent textbook for a numerical analysis course although it will be difficult to cover all the material in just one course.  Because the text is so complete, it could as well be used for self-study.”  (American Mathematical Society, 1 August 2014)
