1. Needs more pictures, especially for the simplicial homology Chapter.
2. CW complexes should be covered before duality and not after.
3. Needs more examples and exercises.
Overall, the book is very good, if you have already some experience in Algebraic Topology. I found that the Croom's book "Basic concepts of Algebraic Topology" is an excellent first textbook. Too bad it is out of print, since it is very popular, every time I get it from the library, someone else recalls it. The combination of these two books probably is the right thing to have: Maunder's book picks up where Croom has left you.
