From the reviews:

"...This book is recommended reading for beginning graduate students and other newcomers in this field. The authors of each chapter are world leading experts in their fields and the chapters are well written and organized. In spite of the introductory level of each chapter, many references are given which will help the interested reader go deeper into the subject of interest. Moreover, an appendix written by the editors gives a summary of the existing Clifford algebra software for symbolic computations."—Mathematical Reviews

"This text contains a set of lectures presented by P. Lounesto, Introduction to Clifford Algebras; I. Porteous, Mathematical Structure of Clifford Algebras; J. Ryan, Clifford Analysis; W.E. Baylis, Applications of Clifford Algebras in Physics; J.M. Selig, Clifford Algebras in Engineering; T. Branson, Clifford Bundles and Clifford Algebras; and an appendix by R. Ablamowicz and G. Sobczyk describing software for solving different kinds of problems involving computations with Clifford algebras. Each one of the lectures is a jewel and will be appreciated [by] newcomers wanting an introduction to a rapidly developing field as well [as] by practitioners, [who] for pleasure certainly will enjoy reading the texts of those well-known experts...."—Zentralblatt Math

"The book under review contains the series of lectures on Clifford Geometric Algebras … . the principal aim of the book to provide beginning graduate students in mathematics and physics and other who are new-interested with no prior knowledge in the secrets of Clifford algebras has been achieved. … the presented material subsumes research activities and some of the recent scientific advances of this theory, and it is an useful learning tool for scientists and engineers from academia and industry." (Clementina D. Mladenova, Journal of Geometry and Symmetry in Physics, Issue 3, 2005)
