Yeah, I know the basics of natural numbers are classic topics in a first year grad course and that it's better to limit your axioms, but I really don't care. A book taking 100 pages to prove that 1+1=2 just doesn't seem like fun. I guess if you agree then it's not for you.

I like "How to Prove it" by Velleman, and most introductory Linear Algebra books double as a sort of introduction to proofs book, so you may look into those.

They were hoping to make a complete and consistent system, ridding any paradoxes they knew about. Then a man named Godel came along and...I remember mathwonk reviewed it (from a mathematician's standpoint) and basically called it a waste of time lol.
