Went awoddy this book at a rate of one paragraph per week, and even that was too fast. If you’re not a graduate-level mathematics student, don’t even consider it.
Jul 21, Sandor Molnar rated it it was amazing. The definitive starting point So, if you are as into category theory as I am, I’d suggest to go through this one first. Clear, understandable, containing loads of examples and exercises awodsy grasp the basics.
After this you may embark on Saunders’ book. After all, Awodey was a doctoral student of Saunders’. Mar 05, Andrew rated it liked it Shelves: I find Category Theory really tough, but this filled in some of the missing pieces.
