I own Symbolic Logic by Virginia Klenk, The Laws of Thought by George Boole, Logic Sets and Recursion by Causey and several discrete math texts including Rosens. Each one of them offers you some insight into logic; however, none of them offer the facility to learn logic like this book does. It is even superior as a first text to Suppes other Introduction to Logic which I also own. I highly recommend it to everyone. I wish I would have found this text 20 years ago it really changed the way I do logic.

Very good intro to mathematical logic. Although, the addition proof chapters near the end feel a bit contrived to me, and are limited in scope.

Full of excercises is a good refreshing for a person who has not be exposed for a while to logic. Nevertheless for a 1st time reader might be a bit confusing on the organization of the subjects.
