I vote for Gallian's Contemporary Abstract Algebra, for an introduction to the subject it is very accurate and elegant. Also the last 10 chapters are somewhat sketchy and so it is easier to read and is presented as (I think) motivational material, which is good for self-study.

why be afraid to go deeper in math?
For fear of becoming 'professionally deformed'
