Reviews

'... Cunningham neglects no opportunity to make the subject as accessible as possible. The mathematical development is rigorous, as it should be, but not excessively so. Although he starts from zero, that is not to say the book is easy, but any difficulty that arises is in the nature of the subject, and is no fault of the author's. Throughout the book, he offers many appropriate examples (or non-examples), and provides numerous and diverse exercises, which often prove results that are later used in the body of the text, drawing the reader into the subject.' Frederic Green, ACM SIGACT News
'This book fulfills its stated goals: 'The textbook is suitable for a broad range of readers, from undergraduate to graduate students, who desire a better understanding of the fundamental topics in set theory that may have been, or will be, overlooked in their other mathematics courses'.' Shoshana Friedman, MathSciNet
