The strongest testament to this timeless work is that nearly 40 years AFTER I purchased this and browsed it as a curiosity, I have now put it on my desk as a reference while delving into the construction of rule based systems for infrastructure design.
There are few technical details in this book. It is not a textbook per se, but a beautiful exposition of mathematics as a whole. It is not for learning any specific topic from; rather it is about appreciating the structure of mathematics as a whole, so that you know how each specific topic stands within that structure.
Indeed, this is an excellent book. Too bad for fashion that it is out-of-print.
N.B. There is a more advanced and technical book by Jean Dieudonne along the same lines. You might want to read it after enjoying your Mac Lane.
