Good, interesting .... but advanced
on 12 September 2016
I have a degree in Maths - and can confirm some of this book is at the final year of an undergraduate degree level, so not for the faint hearted. I thought some of it was very hard going but as usual with Ian Stewart it's a lovely, fluent read nonetheless. If you want to understand, or try to understand, the wonders of abstract algebra (i.e. Group Theory and similar topics) buy it. But don't expect to understand everything!
