Milner presents a set of useful, complex theories concisely. I agree with the reader above in that this isn't bed time reading. However, the rewards are worth the effort. An audience interested in computabilty, semantics, parallel systems and modelling will find that this book presents new tools and ideas in those subjects. Not for the faint of heart, hence only 4 stars.

Process algebra in general is not for the faint of heart. It is therefore no surprise that this book is at times difficult. However, for those interested in the formal analysis of concurrent systems, this is a very good introduction to the algebraic view.

Basic primitives? Professor Milner, If you are writing a book for students, it helps if you make it comprehensible. We didn't all go to Cambridge.

I wish all textbooks were like this - this is definitely the most readable work on the subject. I lost my first copy, but had to buy a second one, it is just fun to read.
