## A Mathematical Introduction to Logic (Google eBook)A Mathematical Introduction to Logic, Second Edition, offers increased flexibility with topic coverage, allowing for choice in how to utilize the textbook in a course. The author has made this edition more accessible to better meet the needs of today's undergraduate mathematics and philosophy students. It is intended for the reader who has not studied logic previously, but who has some experience in mathematical reasoning. Material is presented on computer science issues such as computational complexity and database queries, with additional coverage of introductory material such as sets.* Increased flexibility of the text, allowing instructors more choice in how they use the textbook in courses. * Reduced mathematical rigour to fit the needs of undergraduate students |

User Review - Flag as inappropriate

Dislike the textbook. Not very helpful ways to approach the certain problems. There needs to be more examples in the book, so future students are able to learn better to solve problems. Never go for this textbook. Instead, go for the different logic textbook, like Mendelson's textbook, if you are taking Math Logic course.

User Review - John Chilton - GoodreadsI love terse books, but even for me this book is too terse. It could really benefit from additional samples and explanations. Read full review
