    I am currently using this text for one of my classes. I find it difficult to read from this book and I often have to use other materials to supplement the topics in this book. Even the newest edition is riddled with errors. Its as if none of the editors ever actually read the book before publishing it.

    None the less it is a classical introduction. Just be ready to get very intimate with the book.

    For future reference, a list of corrections to the most recent edition (the sixth) of Hardy and Wright may be found http://www.maths.ox.ac.uk/groups/number-theory/errata-hardy-and-wright [Broken].
