I have been looking for a review of the following book:

Monoids, Acts and Categories with Applications to Wreath Products and Graphs by Mati Kilp, Ulrich Knauer, Alexander V. Mikhalev

but i was unable to find one. Does anybody have experience with it?

Do you have access to journals? Searching through my school's list of articles, there's something in

"SEMIGROUP FORUM Volume 66, Number 3, 489-490 DOI: 10.1007/s002330010145"


"Bull. London Math. Soc. (2001) 33 (4): 505. doi: 10.1017/S0024609301299287"

I don't know if these are what you're looking for (they're not extremely long), and if you don't have access to the journals, I guess I'm probably not allowed to link the articles here. If you'd like me to email them to you or something, I can do that.

The material of the book is way beyond me, so unfortunately I don't have any experience with it, but I hope I could help anyway.
