The first part of this book is an introduction with emphasis on examples that illustrate the theory of operator spaces. The second part is devoted to applications to C*-algebras, with a systematic exposition of tensor products of C* algebras. The third part of the book describes applications to non self-adjoint operator algebras and similarity problems. The author's counterexample to the Halmos problem is presented, along with work on the new concept of length of an operator algebra.
