Renowned professor and author Gilbert Strang demonstrates that linear algebra is a fascinating subject by showing both its beauty and value. While the mathematics is there, the effort is not all concentrated on proofs. Strang's emphasis is on understanding. He explains concepts, rather than deduces. This book is written in an informal and personal style and teaches real mathematics. The gears change in Chapter 2 as students reach the introduction of vector spaces. Throughout the book, the theory is motivated and reinforced by genuine applications, allowing pure mathematicians to teach applied mathematics.

I received an early edition of the book yesterday. It has a red and gray cover. I plan to use it to refresh my knowledge of linear algebra and matrices. The book very clearly explains those concepts, as well as their applications. Highly recommended.

Very clear, if eccentric.
A very clear book, though somewhat eccentric. I'm not sure the newer versions are worth the extra money for most applications, if you can get an inexpensive used version of this book.

A comprehensive review of the subject.
This is the text book for his course on the OCW MIT YouTube videos. The course follows the text and having the text to refer to enhances the teaching in the video. This is a more complete exposition than is found in older texts in my possession. He emphasizes a method that is used in calculators. After watching a few lectures I was determined to get a better grasp of the subject. The book helps me in reaching this goal.
