From the reviews: "... This is one of the few mathematical books, thereviewer has read from cover to cover ...The main merit is thatnearly on every page you will find some unexpected insights... "Zentralblatt für Mathematik "... There are few proofs in full, butthere is an exhilarating combination of sureness of foot andlightness of touch in the exposition... which transports the readereffortlessly across the whole spectrum of algebra...Shafarevich'sbook  which reads as comfortably as an extended essay  breatheslife into the skeleton and will be of interest to many classes ofreaders
