I cannot believe that any of the "barely" votes came from workers in noncommutative ring theory, for whom Goodearl's book is extremely valuable. This is reflected in the MR and Zentralblatt reviews of the book.

The instructions on this Web site state: "If you have voted 'barely' in a particular case, you should be able to give some reasoning." I challenge the voters in question to do so.

Because no barely voter has replied so far, please comment accordingly if you know about the pros and cons of this book.

Even if it is not possible to settle the matter, I think it is useful in all respects to know about the pros and cons.

von Neumann regular rings are important class of rings which were introduced by von Neumann to study various aspects of operator algebras. This book written by Goodearl is the only book which provides a complete overview of the results and open problems related to von Neumann regular rings. This book is extremely useful for the researchers working in noncommutative ring theory. In fact, this book is one of the most cited books in noncommutative ring theory papers. I am surprised to see that not many people have voted in favor of this book. I am strongly in favor of bringing this book back in print.
