Some reviews indicate this book is an "easy" introduction to category theory (CT)--and it is well written--but that's not its primary virtue. It is something even better: Simmons has the knack for writing concretely about an inherently abstract topic.

One aspect of this talent is that he focuses on CT as a problem-solving tool. I've extensively explored the CT literature, and chapter four of this book provides one of the most cogent descriptions that I have seen of how to use CT as an analytic technique. The book also has one of the better accounts of how CT's many 'gadgets' work together.

Simmons provides an extensive number of exercises, with solutions available online. Any reader who works through them will be well prepared for the more abstract CT exemplars that dominate the field.

This review specifically applies only to the Kindle edition of what my knowledgable friends tell me is a fine book in paper editions.

Do not under any circumstances purchase the Kindle edition of this book, as I did.

The diagrams are tiny and do not enlarge with the font. They are so faint that even a magnifying glass doesn't let you read them.

In another kind of book, this would be only annoying. But in a real sense, category theory IS the diagrams.

Excellent introduction to the theory. Some of the terms the author uses are unfamiliar to me but maybe that's my fault.

Very basic, nice and slow intro but need to take your time with it, if you are not a professional mathematician.

After reading the first two chapters I googled the guy in hope of finding some other books he wrote. This is (introductory) category theory and category theory is, among other things, a peculiar way of thinking. This means that even when it's easy it can be deeply disturbing. What I like about the Simmons book the most is that it is really well written and, at times, very funny.

Maybe this book is good for one who already knows Category Theory but not for a person who tries to learn it from scratch. I had to go over all wikipedia for explanations... Even though those missed terms were closely related to Category theory, not that I don't know math at all. I'm quite technical guy.

I just bought the Kindle edition, and I can read the diagrams perfectly on my iPad. I am not sure why someone gave a one star review because she could not read the Kindle edition diagrams.

I bought this book because I wanted to hopefully improve my facility with the Haskell programming language. So far, this book satisfies that need.
He really takes the time to break things down and explain them clearly, especially the section on adjunctions. From this book I started to understand them. Thanks!
