MAA Review[Reviewed by Fernando Q. Gouvêa, on 08/25/2011]
See our review of the first edition. The second edition has been completely revised, and about fifty pages of new material added. In particular, the author has added a short contextualizing introduction to each of the sections, which should prove very helpful to readers. This remains an excellent book.
BLL — The Basic Library List Committee suggests that undergraduate mathematics libraries consider this book for acquisition.
