One day I plan to make it through this book, but for now it has defeated me. May 14, Kirill rated it liked it Shelves: It’s really good for demystifying what mathematical proofs are, but I found some exercises to be very boring and all the more vellemwn or “fun” ones are not answered in the back of the book.
