Abstract Algebra: An Introduction Reviews
See my critical review of Gallian's algebra book. It all pretty much applies here too, but possibly even more so. My impression (possibly wrong) is that this book is intended to present abstract algebra to weaker students, or to students at an earlier stage than would normally see this material. Fine. But if, as seems to be the case, the students never see how the material can be applied to an interesting problem, what was the point? In any case, no one should pay the $187 this book sells for.
