    OK there's a newer edition of this classic text. :)

    But why is it in August?

    My analysis:

    I see a group: The two rings on the wrist combine to make a third element, which is the collar.

    I see a (commutative) ring: swapping rings of jewels that exist around each wrist will preserve the (dress's) structure.

    I see a field: The collar allows for division into the structures you see on the wrists of the dress.

    Well done! :)

    But my question is this price for the book or the dress?

    Yeah but still an expensive dress to wear for an abstract algebra class. You know what I'm not taking abstract algebra, you guys can enjoy the dress. :D

    Maybe it's advanced geometric topology.

    Publisher: learn how customers can search inside this book. :rofl:

    The picture shown is wrong. It should display faded/torn jeans, a polo shirt and deck shoes.

    This makes more sense. At least it's not Speedo. :D
