Combinatorial enumeration and complex analysis

A new book by Flajolet and Sedgewick (2009) Cambridge claims that "The two fields, combinatorial enumeration and complex analysis, are organized into a coherent set of methods for the first time in this book." The three sections are A. Symbolic methods: generation functions, ordinary, exponential, and multivariate, B. Complex asymptotics: singularities and the saddle-point method, and C. Random structures: multivariate asymptotics and limit laws.

If what the authors claim is true, this book is one that could be of interest to several of us.
