Algebraic groups by example
There are currently several books on Lie theory which take a very concrete approach, containing many examples (e.g. Rossmann, Hall, Stillwell). Basically they can be read by a student with some knowledge in calculus, linear algebra and perhaps some mathematical maturity. However, I have yet to find a book on the theory of (linear) algebraic groups which doesn't delve into topics from commutative algebra and algebraic geometry before even defining what an algebraic group is, and even then, most texts take a very abstract approach - most proofs seem like general nonsense to me, but maybe that's just because I'm not an algebraist in heart. In any case, I would very like to see a book on the subject which takes a very concrete approach through examples and constructive proofs.
