I'm using this in an undergraduate introduction to proofs class with a focus on analysis. As a freshman, it seems a bit overwhelming at times - I wouldn't recommend it to most freshmen or even sophomores.

I do feel like this does a more than adequate job preparing me for more advanced math, and goes far above and beyond similar "proofs and problem solving" style books.

This book has some solid ideas, but they get lost in the wording. If the author wasn't trying so hard to use his SAT vocabulary, then I'm sure the book would've been at least a bit more fluent. It seems to be targeted towards a very academic background, and makes references to advanced topics in several areas of scientific research. All in all, an interesting read if you have the necessary background and the time to decrypt it. For me, that wasn't possible.
