From the reviews:
“This book is a very specialized but broadly useful introduction to set theory. It is aimed at ‘the beginning student of advanced mathematics’ … who wants to understand the set-theoretic underpinnings of the mathematics he already knows or will learn soon. It is also useful to the professional mathematician who knew these underpinnings at one time but has now forgotten exactly how they go. … A good reference for how set theory is used in other parts of mathematics … .” (Allen Stenger, The Mathematical Association of America, September, 2011)
It is a compressed book written on set theory. This is especially correct about the final chapters where it gets very hard to read and you may need to read every paragraph a couple... Read morePublished 4 months ago by Unknown
Classic. Concise but has tons of information, not an easy reading because containt is complex, it is very well written.Published 13 months ago by J. Garcia
For those of us who missed out on the Set Theory craze of 'Modern Math', this is a great introduction to the subject.Published 23 months ago by Driftwin Books
This is a GREAT book on set theory. Very readable.
A recent job change required me to come up to speed on set theory ASAP (strange I know, but bang around in the... Read more
Paul Halmos's book is the best introductory text to set theory. Halmos is very skilled at presenting complicated ideas in terms that anyone can understand and enjoy. Read morePublished on October 13, 2013 by Customer
I am gonna buy the book because Alan U. Kennington gave it one star since the book gives an exercise and then proves the theorem and it is really hard.Published on September 20, 2013 by Juan Gonzalez
