#### Review: Set Theory: The Third Millennium Edition, Revised and Expanded

User Review - Michael Hoffman - GoodreadsJust started reading this, I am actually surprised at the clarity of it so far. Most math books of this size tend to try and do too much and lose the forest for the trees. Read full review

#### Review: Set Theory: The Third Millennium Edition, Revised and Expanded

User Review - Tony Strimple - GoodreadsStellar coverage of the fundamentals of set theory, albeit a bit verbose. Kunen's succinct treatment, however, is still better overall. Good for a quiet weekend. I'll let you know how the sections on large cardinals pan out. Read full review
