The purpose of this book is to prepare the reader for abstract mathematics. Ash tries to aid intuition by keeping proofs short and as informal as possible, and using concrete examples as illustration. Thus it is an ideal textbook for an audience with limited experience in formalism and abstraction.

The coverage here is basic, with a set of problems at the end of each section. Solutions to all of the problems are given at the end of the book, a very commendable thing to have done. All of the topics covered are explained in a routine, yet thorough manner. By that I mean that the explanatory strategy is largely a traditional one, with definitions, theorems, proofs and interspersed examples where appropriate. Diagrams are used, but only rarely.
Solid, but not spectacular, this book covers the fundamentals of mathematics that all students should know before they begin calculus and linear algebra. It can serve as a primer or a refresher, depending on whether you are moving forward or are retracing old ground.
