I see that there are four different GTM textbooks on the subject. Which one of these is the most suitable for self-study?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

GTM 56: Algebraic Topology: An Introduction / Massey

GTM 127: A Basic Course in Algebraic Topology / Massey

GTM 153: Algebraic Topology / Fulton

I want to pick up enough background material to move on to knot theory (GTM 175?) and topological QFT.
