Rational homotopy theory is a subfield of algebraic topology. Written by three authorities in the field, this book contains all the main theorems of the field with complete proofs. As both notation and techniques of rational homotopy theory have been considerably simplified, the book presents modern elementary proofs for many results that were proven ten or fifteen years ago.

From the reviews:
"In 535 pages, the authors give a complete and thorough development of rational homotopy theory as well as a review (of virtually) all relevant notions of from basic homotopy theory and homological algebra. This is a truly remarkable achievement, for the subject comes in many guises."

Rational Homotopy Theory
"A complete and thorough development of rational homotopy theory as well as a review of (virtually) all relevant notions from basic homotopy theory and homological algebra. This is truly a magnificent achievement . . . a true appreciation for the goals and techniques of rational homotopy theory, as well as an effective toolkit for explicit computation of examples throughout algebraic topology."
