I am looking for a book(or any other resource) that perhaps is like Hatcher(geometric, visual, and intuitive) but perhaps less chatty.
I have tried to read through May's book, but it is kinda the polar opposite of Hatcher in terms of length and viewpoint(mainly algebraic and ~200 pages).
Is such a compromise between a geometric/visual viewpoint and concision even possible? Or is Hatcher(or something else) the only way?
Please note that the "contents" of algebraic topology that I am looking for are the standard topics normally covered in graduate algebraic topology, which would probably be the same contents of Hatcher due to its popularity.
I found Bott-Tu which is really interesting, but it is quite non-standard and feels more like a supplement to a main text/resource.
My background in general topology is Jänich's book and Hatchers point-set topology notes, and my algebra background is everything up to Galois Theory and the basics of category theory.
Thank you all very much!
