“This book offers a comprehensive survey of order structures on the blocks of combinatorial designs. … I found the book to be a very pleasant read. … Throughout, there are plenty of nice examples and diagrams to bring the subject to life. References are listed at the end of each chapter, rather than at the end of the book. This structure works well here. … This is obviously very welcome for students and other researchers … .” (Peter James Dukes, Mathematical Reviews, May, 2013)
“This monograph focuses on ordered blocks where the difference between adjacent blocks is minimal. … the book is only of interest to mathematical researchers in the field of combinatorial design theory. Each chapter includes some problem exercises … and a list of references. The authors have taken great care in explaining the mathematical formulae, using figures where applicable.” (Klaus Galensa, Computing Reviews, January, 2013)
