In literally anywhere in the world except america profs would just tell you to rip it from libgen and mock you if you actually bought the $5000 book. I feel bad for burgers for being forced to buy expensive books just so the rest of the world can freely pirate it.

Used this book for a proof workshop class and it's one of the most nicely written math books I've read. On top of that, it has a permissible license. Another book I found extremely useful was pic related.

Publisher has to provide LaTex source on request by anybody who bought a copy of the book.
