## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hey, PF! I am currently studying Algebra and Trig, and was wondering what's a good book to use to get eased into the process of proving statements and theorems. I'm planning to use Basic Mathematics by Lang but the proofs in it have been a real hindrance to my progress. Even just simple proofs like the irrationality of the square root of 2 are a struggle right now.

I currently have How to Prove It by Velleman, but was wondering if anyone has any experience with it or other introductory books on proofs.

My knowledge of Proofs is non-existent. Thanks for your time.
