Finite Soluble Groups
"The exposition is open and easy to follow. Good motivation is the rule. The book will serve as an admirable text for a graduate course on group theory (several actually: one could scarcely hope to cover the whole in one course). Not the least of its attractions is the fund of examples at the end of each section. […]The reviewer could find little to criticise. […] The work will be immensely valuable to group theorists and particularly to those who work with finite soluble groups. The authors' hope, expressed in the preface, that the book might serve "as a text for postgraduate teaching, and also as a source of research ideas and techniques" is splendidly realised." Mathematical Reviews
"The authors’ hope that their book will serve as a basic reference in the subject area, as a text for postgraduate teaching and as a source of research ideas and techniques appears to rest on solid foundations. The book meets the specialist’s needs, being comprehensive by and large while concentrating on those parts of the subject where a coherent theoretical structure has emerged. […] The wealth of instructive examples and exercises drawn quite frequently from the original research papers should also be attractive to postgraduate teaching. […] The production is excellent. The authors prove: pleasant style is compatible with precision." Zentralblatt für Mathematik
