Certainly the quality of any text entering its 5th edition will in general terms be well known to potential users well in advance of any review. The 1st edition of this classic appeared in 1960, and the 4th in 1980. To the present edition (beyond the revisions and new problems) has been added a good deal of material derived from recent developments, particularly as those relate to the computational aspects of number theory.
