Review quote

"At the very outset, I would like to say that I am very much impressed by what I have seen. I have read the preface and understand the author's purpose and his aims. I admire him for his courage in attempting such a daunting task, and I admire him even more for what appears to me to be a very successful completion of task....The author has shown considerably good judgment on which proofs to include....So, I am very excited over the prospect of this book being made available; it will be a very useful reference both for beginning graduate students, [as well as] for their teachers."
-BARTLE, Michigan
"From the table of contents, it would appear to include just about everything one would want to know about the foundation of analysis. It is well-organized and the exposition in the sample chapters is quite good-clear, concise, and relatively easy to read. It is very good technically; the author knows what he is talking about....A mini-encyclopedia it certainly is....It is a fine book indeed, written with care by a knowledgeable and thoughtful author."
-Cain, Georgia Tech
