D. J. Newman
Analytic Number Theory
"This book is remarkable . . . The author’s style remains pleasantly discursive throughout the book. Any of these chapters might be useful to a reader planning a lecture course in the relevant subject area . . . The student of analytic number theory would do well to find shelf-room for this book."―MATHEMATICAL
“Donald J. Newman was a noted problem-solver who believed that math should be fun and that beautiful theorems should have beautiful proofs. This short book collects brief, self-contained proofs of several well-known theorems in analytic number theory … .” (Allen Stenger, The Mathematical Association of America, November, 2010)

It's true that this book doesn't have a comprehensive treatment of analytic number theory, I like the other reviewer's analogy of an appendix to generatingfunctionology--this book does focus primarily on sequences and generating functions. However, it is a very clear, fun, and easy to read book. The book's thinness may be misleading; there is plenty of explanatory prose, motivation, discussion, and proofs are generally pretty easy to follow.
The revised printing does correct many errors, but I was still able to find some (and I suspect this means there are a lot more than I was able to find). This was a little bit annoying, but only a little bit. Overall I think this is a great book.
