From the reviews:

"This is a self-contained introduction to the theory of finite groups. The treatment is exhaustive, from the elementary basic results up to characters and representations of finite groups ... . main results are accompanied by several well-chosen examples, and there are many computations with groups of small order, giving the reader a sense of concreteness. ... well-written book, not too wordy nor too terse. Concepts and results are illustrated with examples, and the problem sets at the end of every chapter nicely complement the theory." (Felipe Zaldivar, The Mathematical Association of America, March, 2010)

"This book is an introduction to the finite group theory for undergraduate and beginning graduate mathematicians." (Anatoli Kondrat'ev, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1200, 2011)
