From the reviews:
"The text is very well organised; each chapter ends with useful notes containing much historical background and the source of the main results, together with reports on related results and the references. The beautifully written book is intended for students on graduate courses in axiomatic set theory, and it is also excellent as a text for self-study." (Peter Shiu, The Mathematical Gazette, Vol. 98 (541), March, 2014)
"The book under review provides a thorough and nicely written account of combinatorial set theory and infinite Ramsey theory together with a treatment of the underlying set theoretical axioms as well as of sophisticated methods which are involved in proving independence results. ... I can recommend this book to all graduate students, PostDocs, and researchers who are interested in set theoretical combinatorics ... . also mathematicians from other areas who are interested in the foundational aspects of their subject will enjoy this book." (Ralf Schindler, Jahresbericht der Deutschen Mathematiker-Vereinigung, Vol. 115, 2013)
"This book provides a self-contained introduction to axiomatic set theory with main focus on infinitary combinatorics and the forcing technique. It is intended as a textbook in courses as well as for self-study. ... The author gives the historical background and the sources of the main results in the Notes of each chapter. He also gives hints for further studies in his sections `Related results'." (Martin Weese, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1237, 2012)
