The book's preamble suggests that the text is a basic introduction to algebra and geometry. On a pre-calculus level I would not totally agree with this, since the text shows the links between the two topics in terms of group theory. This would seem to be a vital link, but does raise the level of the text away from what I would term a 'basic introduction'. However, that said, it appears to deal with the topics (and the links between them) in a comprehensive fashion.

As a first year student at Cambridge I found this book completely invaluable. It rigorously covers lots of topics, giving clear step-by-step proofs and explanations. Excellent.
This is the one book that I would recommend that anyone in their first year of maths at university should buy.

J'ai beaucoup de plaisir à lire ce livre.

Les notions sont reprises depuis le début, et chapitre après
chapitre, Beardon nous fait voyager dans plusieurs domaines
mathématiques, avec simplicité et rigueur.

Lorsqu'un résultat est utilisé sans démonstration nous
sommes averti tout de suite, et la vitesse adoptée dans
ce livre me convient parfaitement.

Je ne peux que recommander ce livre pour quiconque désire
se promener dans la géométrie hyperbolique, domaine abordé
dans les derniers chapitres.
