Main Question or Discussion Point

Does anyone have suggestions on an introduction to Linear Algebra? I need a book that covers all or most of these topics in an introductory manner: Systems of linear equations and matrices. Determinants. Vector spaces. Inner product spaces. Eigenvalues and eigenvectors.

all books cover that stuff. numerous free ones have been described here. e.g. the one on the website http://www.math.uga.edu/~roy/ is the world's shortest at 15 pages covering far more than those topics.

much better is the one by sharipov.
