I've tried over the last 5 years, many intro Complex Analysis text books and this one is by far the best one I've used. It's not overly-complicated, not too many proofs, and is a pleasant read compared to other text books which are difficult to follow. It presents the topics in a very accessible way that I believe the student can follow without difficulty.

I would highly recommend this text as a second book for anyone taking the subject for the first time. I use my often.
