The books below are in the spirit of the recommended text "Nuts and Bolts of Proof." If you find that book helpful, you might consider ordering one or more of these from someplace like Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble (these texts are listed in order of my familiarity with them, which may not be the same order I would recommend them in).
