Reviews

'This is a well-written and motivated book, with carefully chosen topics, examples and exercises to engage the reader, making it suitable in the classroom or for self-study.' Felipe Zaldivar, MAA Reviews
'The author aims to provide a comprehensive but fastpaced grounding in results which can be applied to areas as diverse as number theory, combinatorics, topology or commutative algebra ... While the proofs are rigorous, the style is relatively informal and designed to showcase as many results as possible which are applicable beyond the realms of \pure representation theory.' Stuart Martin, MathSciNet
