Topology How are Kelley, Dugundji, and Willard compared to Munkres?

  1. Feb 29, 2016 #1
    Dear all,

    I recently found the topology textbooks written by Kelley, Dugundji, and Willard, which I heard that they are more concise and motivational than Munkres, which is a required text for my current topology course. I actually do not like Munkres as he is very verbose, and his problems are not insightful and challenging either. Unfortunately, there is no way for me to read Kelley, Dugundji, or Willard as all of them are already checked out....I would like to hear your opinions about their pros and cons, and how they are compared to Munkres. Please help me!

    I read Armstrong, Kahn, and Hocking, and I found the last two books to be better than Munkres (I did not like Armstrong's exposition). I never read Kelley, Dugundji, and Willard...
