An excellent book. It covers the measure-theoretic material in a very understandable way, while offering some very neat proofs and motivating arguments. Professionals as well as students will want to buy this text, as it offers a very useful compendium of results that one can refer to. -- Adrian Pagan, Australian National University in Canberra
