RememberMe15449293dFor a much more recent one that's borderline hilarious, try "Proof and Disproof in Formal Logic: An Introduction for Programmers" by Richard Bornat, circa 2005 or so. I actually laughed out loud in places. A great example of a book that not only teaches you the basics well but also entertains in the process, there are very very few that do this well (another would be Physically Based Rendering by Pharr et. al.).
It doesn't go deep into logic and type theory - there's "Practical Foundations for Programming Languages" by Robert Harper for that, I'm struggling with it right now. Also "Types and Programming Languages" by Benjamin Pierce, which is a fairly heavy book, I'm also going through that right now.
RememberMe15449293d@QuanticoCEO also Stanford's Introduction to Logic course on Coursera is incredible. I can't stress this enough. It's very practical, it has you actually applying all that stuff in a proof environment they made. It's where I send folks if they want to learn logic because that way they get hands on experience using it.
Pretty much the first course I ever finished on Coursera and paid for. Fuck the certificate, the proof environment assignments are worth it.
Miles Edgeworth: It's so basic you barely need an introduction.
