This book is dense and huge. So you know it has a ton of information.

I don't know if it is the best treatment of the material, but it is thorough (maybe even TOO thorough.)

But all in all it was the best algebra textbook I've ever had.

Used it all year in a graduate algebra course, and fortunately my torrid love affair with it has come to an end...

What I learned from this book:

commutative algebra, field theory, representation theory (sort of,) galois theory, and algebraic geometry.
