    Advice on my next set theory book

    I've been studying set theory by Lipschutz and I want to buy some more books on this branch of maths. I'm really enjoying it. I was considering set theory by Hausdorff. It seems like a good book to have on the shelf. Do any members out there have this? What's your opinion on it or do you recommend something better?

    Set Theory by Hausdorff veers of onto basic metric spaces, if you want to go there.
    Set Theory & Logic by Stoll is complete and much like what you have already.
    Elements of Set Theory Herb Enderton is great readable text.
    An Outline of Set Theory by James M Henle was was written as a problem text for self-study.
    Naive Set Theory by Paul Halmos is a standard. It only covers set theory, but is used by many working mathematicians/

    Re: Advice on my next set theory book

    I have several months experience in set theory so I'm going to go for the outline by Henle. I'm happy with problems for now. But I'm very interested in the axiomatic approach. What plethora of books do you suggest for axiomatic theory?
