    Book Recommendation

    I've graduated and will take the next year off, though I've always wanted to be a little proficient in topology, so I'd like to do a self-study for the next year. Which text would you recommend for this? I've heard that Munkres is the standard text, though I fear that I may need something that doesn't demand that the reader make very large intellectual leaps since I won't have the assistance of a professor and I'm a little slow in the head.

    I like Crossley's Essential Topology, what I've read of it so far. Munkres is the standard, however.

    If you did not do undergraduate topology, I would suggest Fred H Croom's Principles of Topology.
