This is a very nice book for a first course in probability theory for advanced undergraduate students, i.e., students with the basic ideas of real analysis in their pockets. The material and the order in which it is presented are traditional. But the way it is presented and the list of special topics is what sets it apart from most textbooks of the same level. A specially nice chapter is the one devoted to the study of the different convergence modes. Experts in pedagogy should decide whether the inclusion of the solutions to the problems is a handicap or not, but do not miss the opportunity of trying it. Beware of some annoying misprints.
