From the reviews:
“This book is a very specialized but broadly useful introduction to set theory. It is aimed at ‘the beginning student of advanced mathematics’ … who wants to understand the set-theoretic underpinnings of the mathematics he already knows or will learn soon. It is also useful to the professional mathematician who knew these underpinnings at one time but has now forgotten exactly how they go. … A good reference for how set theory is used in other parts of mathematics … .” (Allen Stenger, The Mathematical Association of America, September, 2011)

Set theory, as is most mathematics, is hard, so be prepared to think. This book has only 102 pages in it and has just about everything I ever needed to know about set theory for me to feel confident using this theory to understand and prove things in other branches of mathematics.
Halmos's Naive Set Theory is the type of book I look for most, when I'm interested in a topic outside my specialization, but would like to know it better to apply it to my research. It's a clear, concise introduction to set theory, getting to the meat of it, without all the little asides and interesting things that distracts from learning the core of the subject.
This book should be on the bookshelf of every serious (and amateur) mathematician.
A recent job change required me to come up to speed on set theory ASAP (strange I know, but bang around in the industry long enough and you'll be amazed at the stuff you have to learn,) and this book was recommended. Naive Set Theory hits the ball out of the park.
