Hi,

I was in exactly your position, and then I found the following books,
both of which are excellent, and are just what you need:

title = {A First Course in Fuzzy Logic},
author = {Hung T. Nguyen and Elbert A. Walker},
publisher = {Chapman \& Hall/CRC},
edition = {Second},
address = {Boca Raton},
year = 2000

title = {Mathematical Principles of Fuzzy Logic},
author = {Vil{\'e}m Nov{\'a}k and Irina Perfilieva and Ji\v{r}{\'i}
                Mo\v{c}ko\v{r}},
publisher = {Kluwer Academic Publishers},
address = {Boston},
year = 1999

Hope this helps,

Nick Smith
