Category Theory by Steve Awodey
In all, Awodey’s Category Theory is a very nice and recommendable introduction to the subject. An extra topic of cartesian closed categories and the lambda-calculus is also provided – a must for computer scientists, logicians and linguists! Groups and Categories 5: The material covered includes the standard core of categories; functors; natural transformations;equivalence; limits and colimits; functor categories; representables; Yoneda’s lemma; adjoints; categoy.

I think that reading Awodey should really help understanding of the categpry on a second pass through some of the material. Constructive Type Theory and Homotopy Theory. And cateory seem only to get worse as the book progresses.
I must find out what, if anything, is happening about that. David Joseph rated it liked it Jun 11,
