Industry Reviews

From the reviews of the original French edition:

"... The content is quite classical ... [...] The treatment is less classical: precise although unpedantic (rather far from the definition-theorem-corollary-style), it contains many interesting commentaries of epistemological, pedagogical, historical and even political nature. [...] The author gives frequent interesting hints on recent developments of mathematics connected to the concepts which are introduced. The Introduction also contains comments that are very unusual in a book on mathematical analysis, going from pedagogy to critique of the French scientific-military-industrial complex, but the sequence of ideas is introduced in such a way that readers are less surprised than they might be.
J. Mawhin in Zentralblatt Mathematik (1999)

From the reviews:

"Analysis I is the translation of the first volume of Godement's four-volume work Analyse Mathematique, which offers a development of analysis more or less from the beginning up to some rather advanced topics. ... the organization of the material is radically different ... . It would ... make excellent supplementary reading for honors calculus courses." (Gerald B. Folland, SIAM Review, Vol. 47 (3), 2005)

"A book on analysis that is quite different from all other books on this subject. ... for those who essentially know the material (the level of an average graduate student, say), and who are interested in mathematics will certainly love reading it. Those who lecture this material may find a lot of inspiration to make their lessons entertaining." (Adhemar Bultheel, Bulletin of the Belgian Mathematical Society, Vol. 12 (2), 2005)

"Analysis I is an English translation of the first volume of a four-volume work. Analysis I consists of a spirally organized, organic, non-linear treatment of the introductory areas of 'mathematical analysis as it was and as it has become'. It is infused with some excellent, sensitive appreciations of the work of pioneers ... and reads as a heady blend of both classical concerns and modern refinements, often illuminated by a variety of approaches." (Nick Lord, The Mathematical Gazette, March, 2005)
