## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi everybody.

Next year I will start an undergraduate course on algebraic topology.

Which book would you suggest as a good introduction to this matter ?

My first options are the following:

1.- "A First Course in Algebraic Topology" by Czes Kosniowski

2.- "Algebraic Topology: An Introduction", by W.S.Massey

but I don't know whether they are comparable or there is one that is much better than the other.

Then, I am also wondering to pick up "Topology", by J.R.Munkres.

I think it covers general and algebraic topology, but I am afraid it is not a "introductory" textbook as Kosniowski and Massey.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
