Junk. Oct 26, 2001
This book amazes me with a lack of smooth and logical progression through the ideas of topology. We spent about a month in the class room going over the first 10 pages! This is how tersely the book is written. Why can't advanced subjects take some lessons from the typical calc text and create texts that allow easier grasping of the subjects? Sometimes getting a book like this makes one question the value of going to grad school. Probably if I were given a blindfold and a shelf of topology books other than this one to choose from, I would come out light years ahead in learning the subject. Topology is a pretty neat branch though!
