    I was reading a couple of books, and I have got interested in looking at Groups. Someone recommended Adventures in Group Theory by David Joyner: is anyone here in a position to recommend it (or other) or do you need to have some undergraduate lectures under your belt to understand it?

    Fearless symmetry is a good book. Although, that was my impression from looking at it for five minutes.

    Thanks. Its hard when you have to order them over the internet, and you can't get a good look at them until you've spent the money and its sitting there

    Wow, thanks: i was quite unaware that you can do that! Thanks!

    As for the book, I'm still not sure. I'm thinking possibly, but it will require further thought.

    I actually went to my local library in Omagh and saw this book called "Teach yourself Mathematical Groups" by Hugh Neil which looks good
