Great entry-level book for self-learners. Lots of exercises, along with complete prose-based explanations of concepts. Mangling what I read in another review for my own purposes: reads like a novel rather than an equation-based adventure game. ( )

The best math book that doesn't have sex in it (It does have violence in it... sword fights mainly). ( )

First words
Preface -- Once, when I was a student struggling to understand modern algebra, I was told to view this subject as an intellectual chess game, with conventional moves and prescribed rules of play. I was ill-served by this bit of extemporaneous advice, and vowed never to perpetuate the falsehood that mathematics is purely -- or primarily -- a formalism. My pledge has strongly influenced the shape and style of this book.
