Agreed. I have moved the thread to "Set Theory, Logic, Probability, Statistics"

Anyways, the book by Hrbacek and Jech is the best introduction to set theory that there exists. But it may need be suited for you, that's why I asked the questions...

I'd figure out what you know already, and where you want to go with Set Theory. Each text assumes something different from the reader, and this is important. Then, once you figure out where you are mathematically, choose a book. Good luck. I've found Set Theory to be one of the more rewarding subjects I have studied/am studying.

Halmos Set Theory created more problems for me than it solved tbh, I've just ordered https://www.amazon.com/dp/0521168481/?tag=pfamazon01-20

because it not only builds all of the prerequisite logic up in the opening chapter (100 pages!)

but because the preface sounds as if it's exactly what I've been looking for & because it

discusses things I've been trying to find out about in the context of set theory. Read the

preface on amazon's preview feature and see how it applies to you, hopefully it's not a

waste :/
