Summary and Info
This book is very elegant, a pleasure to read, but not a great textbook -- after reading you are likely not to remember anything other than having enjoyed it (this is particularly true of the proof of Dirichlet's theorem). For actually learning to work in the subject (of analytic number theory), Davenport's book Multiplicative Number Theory is VASTLY superior.
