Book of Proof by Richard Hammack

For any student who wants to read mathematics at undergraduate level should purchase this book. It is an introduction to mathematical proof and at its present price of approximately £8 is a good buy. I think you can download it free from the authors’ personal webpage.

It has a large number of exercises to reinforce your understanding and some good illustrations.

I do not know who published this book but it lacks a polished output and gives the impression that it has been printed on a local printer and bounded together; maybe this is why it can be sold at such a cheap price. Additionally it only gives solutions to odd numbered questions which can be off putting to a student who wants to use this book for self-learning.
