Springer is having their annual Yellow Book sale and I was going to pick up an algebra text to supplement Dummitt and Foote. I'm not really satisfied with D&F--to me, the tone is too conversational and I have trouble finding the information I want from their long paragraphs of discussion.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I've had people recommend Lang and Hungerford, but I've never given them more than a cursory glance. Does anyone here prefer one over the other?

Also, in the catalog there's a book by Lorentz that I've never heard of. Anyone know anything about it?
