The first chapter is a very mixed bag:

Negative: "mixed cgs-Gaussian" units. Muddled and contradictory definition plasma. (The "fourth state of matter"/ionised gas definition is wrong and should be dropped.) Counter-intuitive notation.

Positive: Detailed discussion of collision frequencies, does not assume singly ionised heavy ions, quantitative definitions of quasi-neutrality, relativistic and classical limits.
