However, ( IMO) you should have a working familiarity with Euclidean Geometry, College Algebra, Logic or Discrete Math, and Set Theory before attempting this book. Hatcher will (generally speaking) lead you up to the point at which you can finish excavating his logic; at times his definitions are infuriatingly "pretty" and vague, and you will have to check other sources.
