To be sure, the material here is not mathematically difficult in itself indeed it is one of the delights of this area that the initial Big Results come so quickly.

The material covers many important results from logic, pretty much from scratch. We get a direct proof of compactness. A theory of natural numbers with just the successor function built in which is shown mathdmatical be complete and decidable, and a decision procedure by elimination of quantifiers is given. The chapter ends with a little model theory — compactness, the LS theorems, interpretations between theorems — all rather briskly done, and there is an application to the construction of infinitesimals in non-standard analysis which is enferton going to be too compressed for a first encounter with the heebert.
It is intended for the reader who has not studied logic previously, but who has some experience in mathematical reasoning. Not very helpful ways to approach the certain problems.

We also get an exploration which can be postponed of the idea of proofs herbrt induction and the Recursion Theorem, and based on these we get proper proofs of unique readability and the uniqueness of the extension of a valuation of atoms to a valuation of a set of sentences containing them perhaps not the most inviting things for a beginner to be pausing long over.
