Perturbation Methods

This is a concise and precise text. This book amplified my understanding of asymptotics (which is limited) and is an excellent complement to Bender and Orszag.

I found the discussion of the limitation of convergence of series (unless it is extremely rapid), the value of divergent series, the art of the approach by analyzing the behaviour (order) of the functions within sections of the domain helpful conceptually. The more complex middle and end of the book are subjects I hope to return to (this is a personal limitation not a criticism of the book). The first half, however, significantly improved my understanding.
