About the Author

Luis F. Moreno received his B.A. in mathematics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1973, an M.S. in mathematics education at State University of New York, Albany in 1976, and an M.A. in mathematics at State University of New York, Albany in 1982. He belongs to the Mathematical Association of America (Seaway Section 2nd vice-chair in 2000) and New York State Mathematics Association of Two-Year Colleges, being campus liaison for both organizations. He teaches at Broome Community College where, besides the standard undergraduate courses through linear algebra and real analysis, he has taught courses in statistics, statistical quality control, and logic.


The title of this book suggests a friendly tone and a gentle introduction to real analysis. This does indeed seem to be the case, as the book's size and reader-friendly layout suggest… The annotated bibliography will be appreciated by both the instructor and by interested students." - CMS Notices
