### In the press

From the reviews:

"It is a full-fledged advanced course on themes in higher algebra suited for a specialized graduate seminar, a research seminar, and of course, self-study by an aspiring researcher. … Serre’s Problem on Projective Modules, is very clear and well written … and quickly gets the reader properly air-borne. … the pay-off is huge: this is fantastic stuff. … is a superb book. It’s highly recommended." (Michael Berg, MathDL, March, 2007)

"The book starts with the basics of projective modules and the K_{0} and K_{1} groups, and then gives the classical, partial results about Serre’s conjecture. … This well-written book is the definitive treatment of ‘Serre’s conjecture’ – its history, solution, and generalizations – and will be of interest to both beginning graduate students and advanced researchers in this field." (David F. Anderson, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1101 (3), 2007)

"Lam has done a magnificent job of organizing the mated al and presenting complete proofs of all the results directly connected with Sen-e's problem. ... The references are complete and make the book a very valuable reference even for experts in the field.... It will be very useful to students wishing to learn about projective modules ... . This is definitely a book that anyone ... interested in projective modules should have on his or her shelf!" (Richard G. Swan, Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society, Vol. 45 (3), July, 2008)
