A Course in Functional Analysis
"This book is an excellent text for a first graduate course in functional analysis . . . Many interesting and important applications are included . . . This book is a fine piece of work. It includes an abundance of exercises, and is written in the engaging and lucid style which we have come to expect from the author."
From the reviews of the second edition:
“This book should be in the library of anyone teaching functional analysis or who wants a working mathematician’s masterfully developed course on functional analysis … . This book is a comprehensive introduction to functional analysis. … I definitely recommend this book to anyone who really want/need to learn true functional analysis for graduate work.” (Philosophy, Religion and Science Book Reviews, bookinspections.wordpress.com, October, 2013)
