inaccessible

by Albatross on Nov 3, 2012

This book is poorly written. The theorems and so forth are not marked off from the main text, so that when one is reading a difficult proof one may run over the end without knowing. There are also linguistic sillinesses like "whether or not" where "whether" is meant - my copy has some deletions on this account. There should surely have been more examples of things proved to exist. I understood the first few chapters despite the poor presentation, but got thoroughly bogged down a little more than half-way through. As I am an MMath whose degree work contained some logic, the fault is probably not mine. I understand that the editions revised by Burgess have a better lay-out of proofs, but I shall not take the risk for a while - I may seek knowledge on this subject elsewhere.
