What’s new. Advice. John Baez March 25, 2007 I have reached the stage where young mathematicians and physicists sometimes ask me for advice.

Here is my advice. Most of it applies to grad students and postdocs in any branch of science who seek an academic career involving research. Mathematics on the Web: Books. This page lists some sources for books on the Web.

There are a few electronic books already available, but the primary sources remain the publishers whether fully commercial or university publishers; in addition, book dealers can provide out-of-print and antiquarian material. Of course, libraries are the most important resource for the literature of mathematics. Directories of books available on the Internet Electronic Books.

It has been approved by the American Institute of Mathematics' Open Textbook Initiative. Also see the Mathematical Association of America Math DL review (of the 1st edition), and the Amazon reviews. The second edition is identical to the first edition, except some mistakes have been corrected, new exercises have been added, and Chapter 13 has been extended. (The Cantor-Bernstein-Schröeder theorem has been added.) The two editions can be used interchangeably, except for the last few pages of Chapter 13.
