I received the book, admired the beautiful hardcover, but when I opened it I was immediately shocked by the crude quality of the printing. Sign up using Email and Password.

Pollaxk reviewer Lucius Schoenbaum had similar complaints as me, but for some reason he gave a 5 star rating. I hope this clears everything up for you. So I stuck to this book.

Now I have poplack teach those subjects, so I decided to buy a copy for myself. But I really feel like you’ll benefit more from spending a good few hours working out the details for yourself.


I have difficulty to solve this problem. Over all, I find it rather hard to learn from One of these items ships sooner than the other. The exposition is concise but includes enough discussion to build some intuition. Let’s be analysts and ignore hard stuff.

The general consensus with my friends is that the book is horrible. Definitions, theorems and proofs are often mixed in paragraphs with a large amount of wishy-washy explanations, which makes the book useless if you are using it for reference. Some are routine explorations of the main material.

I fear I’ll be dizzy if I start reading this; I guess that if I try to scan a page of the original with my home scanner and print it on a laser printer I’ll get a better result.

The inverse function theorem should help.

There is an gjillemin topology solution using relative homology, similar in flavor to the proof of the invariance of domain theorem. Sometimes statements are proven in a very hand wavy way, and then there are problems where such hand wavy arguments would make a statement trivial. Well, as it happens, I am currently the reader and I haven’t been able to show it.

I would hope that no one would have to read this book.
