This book is focused on the students of computer and information science. But is also very helpful for students of other subjects, especially philosophy. It offers the basics in - set theory - relations, functions - proabability - permutations and combinations - propositional and quantificational logic. There are a lot of exercises thrown in, partially with solutions. So it is very appropriate for self-study. I benefitted most from the chapters about relations & functions and permutations & combinations. For every subject there are other textbooks, more comprehensive and more substantial. But here you have one book for five or more subjects in one sweep. After every chapter the author recommends annotated literature; very helpful to go more thoroughly in some of the subjects. For most students "Sets, Logic and Maths for Computing" is a basic choice. Highly recommended.
