Mark Hunacek reviews A Guide to Groups, Rings, and Fields

A Guide to Groups, Rings, and FieldsMark Hunacek reviews A Guide to Groups, Rings, and Fields by Fernando Gouvêa as an MAA review.

"The MAA Guide series — a subset of the Dolciani Mathematical Expositions — is rapidly becoming one of my favorite series of books. I like expository books that provide a quick and interesting entrée into an area of mathematics, or a useful source of examples, and that is precisely what these are. They are also, thanks to careful selection of authors, generally very well-written, informative and particularly useful as a resource for a varied audience. This book, the most recent one in the series (number 8, following books on complex variables, advanced real analysis, real variables, topology, elementary number theory, advanced linear algebra and plane algebraic curves) continues this tradition."
