I could be writing about my crazy week.. but, no, all you get for now is a quiz that at least some of you might find as cute as I found it.

If I were a SpringerVerlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be Frank Warner's Foundations of Differentiable Manifolds and Lie Groups.
I give a clear, detailed, and careful development of the basic facts on manifold theory and Lie Groups. I include differentiable manifolds, tensors and differentiable forms. Lie groups and homogenous spaces, integration on manifolds, and in addition provide a proof of the de Rham theorem via sheaf cohomology theory, and develop the local theory of elliptic operators culminating in a proof of the Hodge theorem. Those interested in any of the diverse areas of mathematics requiring the notion of a differentiable manifold will find me extremely useful.

  That's entirely too amusing.  (Link) 

I was sort of a tie between Frank Warner's Foundations of Differentiable Manifolds and Lie Groups. and:

If I were a SpringerVerlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be Joe Harris's Algebraic Geometry: A First Course.
I am intended to introduce students to algebraic geometry; to give them a sense of the basic objects considered, the questions asked about them, and the sort of answers one can expect to obtain. I thus emphasize the classical roots of the subject. For readers interested in simply seeing what the subject is about, I avoid the more technical details better treated with the most recent methods. For readers interested in pursuing the subject further, I will provide a basis for understanding the developments of the last half century, which have put the subject on a radically new footing. Based on lectures given at Brown and Harvard Universities, I retain the informal style of the lectures and stresses examples throughout; the theory is developed as needed. My first part is concerned with introducing basic varieties and constructions; I describe, for example, affine and projective varieties, regular and rational maps, and particular classes of varieties such as determinantal varieties and algebraic groups. My second part discusses attributes of varieties, including dimension, smoothness, tangent spaces and cones, degree, and parameter and moduli spaces.

  These people are totally on crack. I'm a game theory text!  (Link) 


If I were a SpringerVerlag Graduate Text in Mathematics, I would be J.L. Doob's Measure Theory.
I am different from other books on measure theory in that I accept probability theory as an essential part of measure theory. This means that many examples are taken from probability; that probabilistic concepts such as independence, Markov processes, and conditional expectations are integrated into me rather than being relegated to an appendix; that more attention is paid to the role of algebras than is customary; and that the metric defining the distance between sets as the measure of their symmetric difference is exploited more than is customary.

If this is the state of your writing abilities right now, I'm afraid to look at the final...  From:  lorimt

Did you get this test through leech? I know the guy who wrote it. It's totally a great test.  From:  avani

No, I didn't. Was the culprit a mathcamper?
