Abstract: When it comes to teaching mathematics, it quickly becomes apparent that pedagogical and didactic interests are never perfectly aligned. The quality of a textbook therefore depends on how well the authors manage to reconcile these conflicting interests. In this respect, we must admit that the authors of Operator Theory by Examples, Stephan Ramon Garcia, Javad Mashreghi and William T. Ross, have managed to find the ideal balance. As the title suggests, this book places a strong emphasis on instructive examples. Moreover, it is important to specify that this book is less focused on concepts than on specific operators such as the unilateral and bilateral shift operators, Cesàro operators, Volterra operator, Bishop operator, Toeplitz and Hankel operators, or Dirichlet and Bergman shift operators. In other words, the theory of operators is developed in conjunction with the study of concrete properties (norm, spectrum, compactness, invariant subspaces, etc.) of the operators under consideration, rather than in the abstract.
