This was the text for my proof writing class, and I must say I was quickly impressed with the book! I figured it was just going to be another typical monotonous text that focuses more on fancy computer graphics than actual substance, but I was wrong. Sundstrom does a very good job explaining the concepts, and takes things at a nice steady pace. This is especially present in his chapter on mathematical induction where he goes through all the hassle to fully establish the concept of an inductive set before even having the reader think about doing a proof. He also helps make things appear very intuitive, which I think is lacking in math textbooks today. Another thing that stood out about this book to me was how he introduces the problems. Yes at the end of each section he has all these problems to do like all math books have, but interestingly enough, throughout the section itself he'll throw little easy questions at you and progress checks. To me it shows that Sundstrom really wants to make sure the reader get whats going on, another thing that is lacking in many math textbooks today where it is very easy to get lost. I highly recommend this whether you may need it for extra help in a proofs class, or if you just want to teach proof writing to yourself.

This book was required for one of my math classes. There is a newer version of this book available as a free pdf but I like to have an actual book. The binding of this book is a little cheap and as such the book is already showing signs of heavy use. A hardback would have been nice.

This is a very nice introduction to the notion of proof and rigor in mathematics. A real value as well.
