Editorial Reviews

Review

It would in fact be difficult to find in this excellent book three consecutive pages that do not contain material useful to students or practitioners. … A diligent, active reader of this outstanding book will have the best foundation at minimum cost for making meaningful contributions to mathematics, science, or engineering.
Computing Reviews, November 2011

Now in an updated and expanded third edition, A Concise Introduction to Pure Mathematics provides an informed and informative presentation into a representative selection of fundamental ideas in mathematics … . Of special note is the inclusion of solutions to all of the odd-numbered exercises. An ideal, accessible, elegant, student-friendly, and highly recommended choice for classroom textbooks for high school and college level mathematics curriculums, A Concise Introduction to Pure Mathematics is further enhanced with a selective bibliography, an index of symbols, and a comprehensive index.
Library Bookwatch, December 2010

This book displays a unique combination of lightness and rigor, leavened with the right dose of humor. When I used it for a course, students could not get enough, and I have been recommending independent study from it to students wishing to take a core course in analysis without having taken the prerequisite course. The material is very well chosen and arranged, and teaching from Liebeck’s book has in many different ways been among my most rewarding teaching experiences during the last decades.
—Boris Hasselblatt, Tufts University, Medford, Massachusetts, USA

In addition to preparing students to go on in mathematics, it is also a wonderful choice for a student who will not necessarily go on in mathematics but wants a gentle but fascinating introduction into the culture of mathematics. … This book will give a student the understanding to go on in further courses in abstract algebra and analysis. The notion of a proof will no longer be foreign, but also mathematics will not be viewed as some abstract black box. At the very least, the student will have an appreciation of mathematics. As usual, Liebeck’s writing style is clear and easy to read. This is a book that could be read by a student on his or her own. There is a wide selection of problems ranging from routine to quite challenging.
—From the Foreword by Robert Guralnick, University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA

Praise for Previous Editions:
The book will continue to serve well as a transitional course to rigorous mathematics and as an introduction to the mathematical world … .
—Gerald A. Heuer, Zentralblatt MATH, 2009

…a pleasure to read … a very welcome and highly accessible book.
—Michael Ward, The Mathematical Gazette, March 2007

Format: Paperback
Now in an updated and expanded third edition, "A Concise Introduction To Pure Mathematics" by Martin Liebeck provides an informed and informative presentation into a representative selection of fundamental ideas in mathematics including the theory of solving cubic equations, the use of Euler's formula to study the five Platonic solids, the use of prime numbers to encode and decode secret information, the theory of how to compare the sizes of two infinite sets, the limits of sequences and continuous functions, the use of the intermediate value theorem to prove the existence of nth roots, and so much more. Of special note is the inclusion of solutions to all of the odd-numbered exercises. An ideal, accessible, elegant, 'student friendly', and highly recommended choice for classroom textbooks for highschool and college level mathematics curriculums, "A Concise Introduction To Pure Mathematics" is further enhanced with a selective bibliography, and index of symbols, and a comprehensive index.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have not yet finished the book. However, so far every chapter introduces and reviews a familiar concept, and gradually takes it to a whole new level. A lot of the book deals with proofs, starting with simple statements and using those proofs to go further in depth. There is a wonderful bit of humor in each lesson, and a lot of the questions at the end of each chapter are really thought-provoking (answers are only given to odd numbered problems). Although this probably sounds a bit cheesy, this book has already given me a greater appreciation of the beauties and wonders of math.

Format: Paperback
The book is suitable to bridge the gap between A-Level & University Math, and it goes further to 1st year Math course. The content is light but covers just enough in depth, without too much materials to digest.
Excellent book for revision in Modern Math or introduction to non-Mathematicians.

Excellent book. Outstanding introduction to pue mathematics. I also have the second edition, I bought the third edition mainly because it has answers to odd number problems.

This is going to be my text book. This is much cheaper than in the book store of my university. I really like the topic.
