Best proofwriting book?

  1. Jul 10, 2012 #1
    Hello, I am going to be taking analysis and to ease the pain a little bit I wanted to do a treatment of proof writing here for the next month. I am not sure which book to order. If any of you people who are more knowledgeable on the subject than me could let me know of a good book and an area of focus, it would be a big help to me, thank you

    Back in September of Last year, I started studying this book to get me started on proofs
    https://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Mathematical-Proofs-Transition-Mathematics/dp/1420069551

    I certainly wouldn't say its the best book of its kind, but it did help me tremendously. It covers basic logic, set theory, relations, functions, and it goes into the cardinality of sets as well. The last two chapters are on basic analysis and algebra. I think it's perfect for self study.
