May's book "A Concise Course in Algebraic Topology" is a superb demonstration of this. While the book is indeed extremely terse, it forces the reader to thoroughly internalize the concepts before moving on. Also, it presents results in their full generality, making it a helpful reference work. 2 . Ah ha great question! Undoubtedly, the best reference on topology is "Topology" by Munkres: Yes.

$\begingroup$ Hatcher's book is very well-written with a good combination of motivation, intuitive explanations, and rigorous details. It would be worth a decent price, so it is very generous of Dr. Hatcher to provide the book for free download. But if you want an alternative, Greenberg and Harper's Algebraic Topology covers the theory in a straightforward and comprehensive manner. ( views) A Concise Course in Algebraic Topology by J. P. May - University Of Chicago Press, This book provides a detailed treatment of algebraic topology both for teachers of the subject and for advanced graduate students in mathematics. Most chapters end with problems that further explore and refine the concepts presented.

The "word on the street" is that Peter May in collaboration with Kate Ponto is writing a sequel to his concise course (with a title like "More concise algebraic topology"). I've seen portions of it, and it seems like it contains nice treatments of localizations and completions of spaces, model category theory, and the theory of hopf algebras.

Topology is a fundamental tool in most branches of pure mathematics and is also omnipresent in more applied parts of mathematics.

With firm foundations dating only from the s, algebraic topology is a relatively young area of mathematics. There are very few textbooks that treat fundamental topics beyond a first course, and many topics now essential to the field are not treated in any textbook.
