After reading this book I went back to my Calculus textbook and started looking at the proofs.
If you have a course in the foundations of mathematics for the early math major, this is a book that would be an excellent text.
The book is very rigorous in its proofs, yet elementary enough that every student of mathematics can read it.
Great text. You will definitely have more intuitional skills in proof writing after doing the exercises. Concise and clear, as any introductory logic text should be.Published 17 days ago by g0rmandy
