I love terse books, but even for me this book is too terse.
However, I do doubt that such an action-packed presentation is the best way to first meet this material. Material is presented on computer science issues such as computational complexity and database queries, with additional coverage of introductory material such as sets.

Posted on May 21, by Peter Smith. The author has made this edition more accessible to better meet the needs of today’s undergraduate mathematics and philosophy students. Chapter Zero Useful Facts about Sets. On the whole, I preferred Enderton, although that edition of Mendelson was the one that had the interesting sketch of a proof of the consistency of arithmetic.
Talal Alrawajfeh rated it really liked it Sep 04, But, wisely, that chapter has been replaced by a much friendlier and more useful overview of basic set theory in the 2nd edition. Amazon UK claims enedrton Mar Most of us went on to take the graduate model theory intro which used Chang and Keisler or Bell and Slomson as the text, depending on the year.
So what does happen in this chapter? This goes very briskly at the outset. Bob rated it really lgoic it Oct 13, For the usual motivation for separating off propositional logic and giving it an extended treatment at the beginning of a book at this level is that this enables us to introduce and contrast the key ideas of semantic entailment and of provability in a formal deductive system, and then explain strategies for soundness and completeness proofs, all in a helpfully simple and uncluttered initial framework.
