What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

I found this an interesting book to read, and feel that anyone who works though it and works all the exercises, will obtain an excellent grounding in algebraic concepts, praticularly those which have practical applications.(Zentralblatt Math, Volume 946, No 21, 2000)
