Fourth Edition C.W. Curtis Linear Algebra An Introductory Approach. "This book is an important addition to the literature of linear algebra. It would be a pleasure to use it for a one-semester or two-quarter course intended for serious (and talented) students. This book deserves to be as influential with the current generation of mathematics students as was Halmos' Finite-Dimensional Vector Spaces with this reviewer's generation, 45 years ago."--MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS
