Clear and accessible text for any one has a little background in mathematics ( basic algebra skills, some background in single variable calculus is preferred but not necessary).In my opinion it might be the best starting point to get into advanced pure mathematics.

The whole book can be divided into 4 main parts :

1- Introduction to simple logic and set theory.

2- Methods of proofs in Mathematics ( Trivial & Vacuous proofs, Direct proofs, Proofs by contrapositive, by contradiction, by a counter...more

Clear, precise, and altogether excellent introduction of proofs and basic set theory. I'm glad historical context and facts about the development of logic were given (a move few maths textbooks have the balls to do). If you're looking to get into real maths, not the BS taught up to college, this is a great starting point.
