## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello folks,

I am currently finishing up a class on linear algebra, covering vector spaces, bases and dimension, geometry of n-dimensional space, linear transformations and systems of linear equations. I am only getting accustomed to proof writing for the first time in this course. However, I am enjoying the material and the problems, and would like to study more. I am wondering what a good second text would be? The options have considered so far are Axler, Friedberg/Insel, Hoffman/Kunze. Which text is the more gentle one? I will be self studying until they offer the second course, probably next year. Any ideas would be helpful.

Thanks,

MM
