I would say that the focus of this book is on the use of a technique called forcing to construct models of set theory and to show the independence of various set properties from the standard formalisation of set theory, but there are chapters on combinatorial set theory and descriptive set theory. 6 ratings — .

For an understanding of the basics of forcing other sources have more intuitive motivation: John Burgess's article in the Handbook of Mathematical Logic is excellent, and I like the treatment in the newly available (2010) reprint of Smullyan and Fitting's Set Theory and the Continuum Problem. published 1986, avg rating 3.83 — I thought I would get back to abstract math for fun by finally understanding the proof of the independence of the continuum hypothesis. 50 ratings — published 1994, avg rating 4.60 — After I studied "Introduction to set theory" by Hrbacek and Jech, I used this book as an undergraduate student to study the more advanced theorems. published 2014, avg rating 4.00 — Big mistake, this book can't be read this way except by experts in the field.
