The author has accomplished the most difficult task: write a book that is rigorous enough for someone with interest in the mathematical aspects of linear algebra, and interesting enough for someone who is more concerned with the applications of it in the sciences.
There is something else that makes this book exceptional. The author's passion. For instance, in chapter 3, after proving a theorem on the composite of linear transformations, the author exclaims with joy:"Isn't it a great result? Say it in words:'The matrix of the composite is the product of the matrices.' What a lovely formula!"
Linear algebra is definitely not among my mathematical strengths, but Professor Poole made it interesting and challenging.
