"The material is written in a very friendly way. Definitions of the majority of the important notions are preceded by explanations of the ideas. Moreover, the book contains more than 200 exercises, many of which have a solution at the end of the book. This makes it easier to read the book and understand its material. The book could definitely be interesting to a wide spectrum of mathematicians, philosophers and computer scientists." - Michael Krynicki, Mathematical Reviews
