The approach is a very slow one in the sense that a foundation of common operations and rearrangements that are groups that are first examined with text and images. A large number of exercises are included at the end of each chapter and detailed solutions with colored images found in an appendix.
this book could also serve as a text in a first course in abstract algebra provided that the course is limited to groups only or you used supplementary material for rings and fields. If your course is restricted to groups only, then this is the best book available. --Charles Ashbacher, Journal of Recreational Mathematics
It is a book that explore the very nature of the notions of group theory. It is made for the curious but not genius one, to the guy who likes to understand why are the definitions... Read morePublished 12 months ago by Arnaldo Satoru Gunzi
I purchased this book as a refresher on group theory (after having taking both undergraduate and graduate courses in abstract algebra albeit many years ago). Read morePublished 18 months ago by Steve
I am a self study student of mathematics having acquired a taste for it later in life. I only had 1st year calculus and linear algebra in university nearly 20 years ago. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Jho
