Format: Paperback
This is a great book to learn linear algebra from. It introduce you for the basic of linear algebra, like matrices and how to work with them and what you can use them for. There are many matematics sentences in this book with proofs. Also you will learn how to manage determinants and eigenvectors, not forgetting the more difficult Normal Jordan Form (if you need that). The exercises are great to make you remember all the sentences. So if you want to learn more about vectors in dimensions, you can not imagine, such like 5-d, then here is your tool. Also the text is written so you can understand it, wihout beeing someone needing beeing perfect to English.

Doing Maths for my Computer Science Degree wasn't really what I envisaged. So I bought this book to help me with my maths. Incredibly I didn't struggle with it at all. The theory is well explained and the examples make it easy to quickly use the newly learned in practical applications. The authors go into enough detail so you can understand the stuff, not just learn it. On the other hand, they don't warp your brain with unnecessary junk. The proofs were especially helpfull. All in all an excellent book about linear algebra today.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to gain a good understanding of the basics of Linear Algebra. It has many examples to accompany the theory which help the student prepare for exams and also the added bonus of MATLAB-a computer program that comes with the book that allows the user to perform many of the calculations gieven in the book. Also answers given at the back.

One of the greatest introductory books in Linear Algebra 2 Feb 2009
By Arash Mehraban - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is very well written along with many great examples. This book covers basically everything you need to know in an introductory Linear Algebra class about Vectors, Vector spaces, Matrices, Determinants, Linear transformations, Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors, orthogonality, Gram Schmitt process, Systems of equations and and so forth. The people who think this book is too hard, should go back and review their high school algebra books again. One of the great features of this book, as an INTRODUCTORY book, is that it teaches you everything in R^n space. Overall: great 5 star book.

Solution Manual incomplete. 1 Sep 2005
By S. Richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book itself is difficult to read. When new symbols are first used, the explination are burried in the text and time consuming to find. The use of dark blue ink to "color" the items they are refering to is very difficult to distiguish from the normal black text. I waste more time trying to figure out what the symbols mean than I spend understanding the concepts.

The solutions manual covers every 3rd problem, not the compleete set of odd problems like it should (eg. 1,4,7,10...). Detail on the problems is average at best.

A Fair Treatment 5 Feb 2009
By math112 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book presents linear algebra problems pretty much in outline form---an "ok" treatment for some, but not all, of the subject matter. Nevertheless, there are still many topic areas where the explanations are not thorough enough.
Also,its treatment of theorems is not accompanied by a step-by-step explanaton of a problem that relates to it.
After all, this book is supposed to be an aid for students taking this subject for the first time.

I have found a few editing type errors--in some problems: wrong signs, numbers misplaced. This seems to be an omnipresent problem with many of these type books. WHO IS OUT THERE DOING THE FINAL REVIEWS?

I think this subject matter needs some type of video teaching component, but good luck trying to find one.

I think the book has its advantages, but mainly to those already immersed in the subject matter of matrices and determinants, vectors and space. A didactic tool it is not!

Not the best for beginners, but still good 2 Oct 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After giving up on this book when I first learned Linear Algebra,
it has turned out to be a very good reference book on the subject.
If you need to, use Anton's book to learn the subject, but
I keep this one on my shelf.

An excellent intro for those who love maths 30 July 2014
By Matthew Parry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent introduction for those who enjoy mathematics. I have to say I was shocked by the number of people who gave this book only one star, most of them saying that it was confusing or difficult to follow. While I agree that the sections in chapter one could have been organised in a better order, after that I can't fault this book at all. It provides a clear introduction to linear algebra and then goes deeper into the concepts, giving some hints of how far the results of linear algebra can be used in other fields. The examples are easy to understand and relevant to the problem sets at the end of the chapters. There are also a lot of problems, which is always good, as well a Matlab/Octave problems that also serve as an introduction to this powerful programme. Two complaints with the problems is that the software written by the authors for the book is no longer available and the proof problems are usually quite simple.

My only real problem with the book is the quality of the binding. I am going to use this book a lot as a reference and at some point I am clearly going to have to get it rebound. The spine is already cracked and one or two pages are coming loose. They simply should have put the price up a little and gone for a better binding.

But this book is still worth five stars because it is that good. I have used it to review linear algebra on my own (It is twenty years since I had to use it) and I have learnt more from this book than from the original course.

Now ofcourse, some people just don't enjoy mathematics and for them I can see that this would be a difficult book. I suppose this is why it got so many one star reviews. There is a fad nowadays for textbooks written in a conversational style, but I have found that I learn more from books that are a little hard to read since they force you to read the text closely. This is definitely a book to be read closely, but if you enjoy mathematics then that will work in your favor. For these sort of people this is definitely an excellent introductory book.
