really liked it

My decision to work through this book was primarily so I could review proofwriting, and to this end Velleman's /How to Prove It/ was ideal for me for pretty much one reason - there are an impressive number of exercises.

The writing is clear, and I would recommend it to someone who had never encountered proofs before. The use I got out of it was more about practicing proofs rather than learning how to do them, but whenever I forgot something basic I could just go back and look and the explanations were not terribly bogged down by jargon.
