    Is this book worth it? It seems like an interesting read.

    what level are you at? if you've just done calculus with no set theory then that book looks like it would be a very gentle intro to analysis. if you have done some set theory I would get a more advanced book like the one by Pfaffenberger/Johnsonbaugh (it's cheaper too I think)

    I've done a little set theory, but I'm not looking for an advanced text. I just want something I could read before I start university in a few months.

    After going through random pages of it on Amazon, I think I'm gonna go ahead and buy it.

    Thanks for your reply though. :)

    it looks like mr rogers on analysis. i would steer clear of it, unless you enjoy being talked down to.

    I on the other hand think it would be excellent for the purpose devious wants. just to give him a leg up on understanding the course work to come. As a stand-alone teach yourself book, I agree it would be inadequate. Though depending on your financial resources and learning style it might be useful as a companion to a harder text.
