Item description for Elements of Logic via Numbers and Sets (Springer Undergraduate Mathematics Series) by D. L. Johnson...
In mathematics we are interested in why a particular formula is true. Intuition and statistical evidence are insufficient, so we need to construct a formal logical proof. The purpose of this book is to describe why such proofs are important, what they are made of, how to recognize valid ones, how to distinguish different kinds, and how to construct them. This book is written for 1st year students with no previous experience of formulating proofs. Dave Johnson has drawn from his considerable experience to provide a text that concentrates on the most important elements of the subject using clear, simple explanations that require no background knowledge of logic. It gives many useful examples and problems, many with fully-worked solutions at the end of the book. In addition to a comprehensive index, there is also a useful `Dramatis Personae` an index to the many symbols introduced in the text, most of which will be new to students and which will be used throughout their degree programme.

The Best Introduction To Logic and Set Theory Dec 12, 2001
This is the clearest and most thorough introduction to the subject matter I've read. The beginner interested in logic, sets, relations, maps and cardinal numbers cannot do better than to read this text.
It also has solutions to most exercises, a very good index and a guide to all of the symbols and notation that appear.
