Conway wrote this book to give students `a set of tools', discussing `material [that] is used in almost every part of mathematics.' ... this is a well-written book that I enjoyed reading. Assuming that your idea of what to teach in a first-semester course in topology is in line with the author's, this book would make an excellent text for such a course."
