A First Course in Algebraic Topology
This self-contained introduction to algebraic topology is suitable for a number of topology courses. It consists of about one quarter 'general topology' (without its usual pathologies) and three quarters 'algebraic topology' (centred around the fundamental group, a readily grasped topic which gives a good idea of what algebraic topology is). The book has emerged from courses given at the University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne to senior undergraduates and beginning postgraduates. It has been written at a level which will enable the reader to use it for self-study as well as a course book. The approach is leisurely and a geometric flavour is evident throughout. The many illustrations and over 350 exercises will prove invaluable as a teaching aid. This account will be welcomed by advanced students of pure mathematics at colleges and universities.

Review: A First Course in Algebraic TopologyUser Review - Leonhard Euler - Goodreads
Limited in scope. It'd be more valuable if it didn't try being an introduction to algebraic topology while also being an introduction to topology. It doesn't even mention bases. Also the typesetting kind of sucks. Read full review
