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.
