## Elements of homotopy theoryThe writing bears the marks of authority of a mathematician who was actively involved in setting up the subject. Most of the papers referred to are at least twenty years old but this reflects the time when the ideas were established and one imagines that the situation will be different in the second volume. Because of the length, it is unlikely that many people will read this book from cover to cover, but it will be used for reading up on a particular topic or dipping into for sheer pleasure - and the fact that the details may not be quite as expected should add to the enjoyment. |
