Advice needed on learning measure theory.

  1. Jan 15, 2013 #1
    Do you think having Bogachev's Measure Theory (vol. I) as a first exposure to measure theory sounds a good idea?
    I mean while I can understand well the concepts presented in the book, I find some techniques used in the proof section quite hard to follow. :confused:

    Try A Radical Approach to Lebesgue's Theory of Integration. It has a very good historical prelude to measure theory, going up to Chapter 7, after which you can read other textbooks and it will be much better motivated.

    That book looks awesome. I think I'm going to get that too.
