This text makes a real effort to ease the transition from computational to theoretical maths. It is written clearly and simply, as if it is the first time a student has really had to understand a proof and the examples substantiate this with their obvious clarity and sympathetic approach. Exercises reinforce the lessons; many easy exercises at the beginning develop the students' ability and provide encouragement. This book should be of interest to degree and diploma students in departments of mathematics; assumes a grounding in calculus.

"This is a well-written book on analysis with enough exercises. The best feature is that the exercises are all meaningful and illuminating. A great book!" --Senhuei Chen, Howard University
"I really like the organization of this book. The structure seems to allow for varying amounts of depth depending on the strength of the particular class. The homework assignments seem sufficiently stratified. There are some reasonably easy problems and some reasonably difficult ones." --Trey Smith, Angelo State University
