Reviews - What do customers think about General Topology: Chapters 1-4?
a solid introduction Jan 20, 2008
this book is a bit denser than most other introductory general topology books. But it does quite exhaustive survey of important concepts pertaining to general topology.
Since Bourbaki series builds upon its previous materials, many set theoretic ideas and terminologies are used without explanations. So unless one does have access to their previous book "Theory of Sets" there will be some minor frustrations/annoyances when reading this book.
the book that the experts study Jun 20, 2001
i recently ordered "A GENERAL TOPOLOGY WORKBOOK" by Iain Adamson, as i very much wish to understand the mathematics of topology. as i would do with any other book, i started by reading the introduction and suggested readings. Mr. Adamson highly recommends the BOURBAKI series on topology as a reference material. he ascribes to this series as his text of choice and further states that this is the text that he has studied the most closely. it is for this reason that i am ordering this series.
i extend my thanks to mr. adamson for the recommendation. with the plethora of choices in study materials and a limited budget, i needed to narrow my scope and decide which text would best serve me.
