Editorial Reviews

Reasons for This Book's Success"Rigor, integrity and coherence of overall purpose, introducing students to the practice of logic . . ."--Douglas Cannon, University of Washington"The book is clearly and carefully written. I adopted this text because of its detailed and rigorous treatment of the predicate calculus, detailed and optimal treatment of the incompleteness phenomena, standard notation as developed by the Berkeley school."--Karel Prikry, University of Minnesota"It is mathematically rigorous [and] it has more examples than other books . . . I definitely would use a new edition of this book."--Sun-Joo Chin, University of Notre Dame
