This classic treatment of linear algebra presents the fundamentals in the clearest possible way, examining basic ideas by means of computational examples and geometrical interpretation. It proceeds from familiar concepts to the unfamiliar, from the concrete to the abstract. Readers consistently praise this outstanding text for its expository style and clarity of presentation.

- Clear, accessible, step-by-step explanations make the material crystal clear.
- The authors spotlight the relationships between concepts to give a unified and complete picture.
