Been using this textbook for differential equations this term, and to me it seems quite disorganized and disjointed. I was talking with a publishing rep the other day, and he told me a number of other folks in the department feel the same way. I hope we do end up replacing it, perhaps with this text or this text. If any of my students are reading this (I'm pretty sure at least one did after I had put up an earlier edition of this post) and also dislike this text, you have my condolences.

In the meantime, I'll try to write up lecture notes on my own without relying on the text too much. Good craftsmen don't blame their tools.
