See Marion Cohen's review of the first edition. In addition to corrections of errors and typos, there are three main changes to this edition:

  • A new section on monoidal categories has been added.
  • "Dozens of new exercises" were added, with the intent of making the book more useful as a textbook.
  • It is in paperback at less than half the original price.

All the changes serve to make a very good book even better.


Fernando Q. Gouvêa is the editor of MAA Reviews.
