Differential
Equations: A Dynamical Systems Approach
"Many
of the contents of the book have not appeared in popular differential
equations texts. In Chapter 1, the authors introduce the concepts
of fence, funnel, and antifunnel, which have exceedingly useful
properties not exploited in traditional treatments of differential
equations. These new ideas provide enormous payoff throughout
the text.'' 
from a review of Part I, Mathematical Reviews, 1992.
"...both
rigorous and squarely addressed to those students with the most
practical needs. The well known exchange value between pictures
and words is thoroughly exploited..."  from a review of Part I, Choice,
Jan. 1992
"It
crackles with wit and insight on almost every page.''  from a review
of Part I, Steven Strogatz, MIT
"...
a carefully organized, beautifully written, and meticulous volume
filled with perspicuous diagrams on every other page... an elementary
treatment that should not be missed. Undergraduate through faculty.,"

a review of the second volume, Choice, March 1996
