The book consists of 23 chapters, each covering a topic in algebra, number theory, or combinatorics. Each chapter has two parts: a “theory and examples” section that presents the main theoretical results of the topic (with proofs if necessary) and 10-15 example problems, and a “problems for training” section with more difficult problems to challenge the reader. (Solutions to the problems in these latter sections are not provided.)
“Andreescu and Dospinescu’s Problems from the Book is destined to become a classic. The authors provide a combination of enthusiasm and experience which will delight any reader. In this volume they present innumerable beautiful results, intriguing problems, and ingenious solutions. The problems range from elementary gems to deep truths. A reader may stumble at first on some of these worthy challenges, but the struggle will be richly rewarded. A truly delightful and highly instructive book, far more than the usual fare of problem books, this will prepare the engaged reader not only for any mathematical competition they may enter but also for a lifetime of mathematical enjoyment. A must for the bookshelves of both aspiring and seasoned mathematicians.”
