I was forced to read this for a psych course. It is a cozy book for those who do not want to stretch their mental wings. It completely ignores modern perception research and assumes a "deep" structure and surface structure for every problem.-what is the deep structure of a photon, is it a wave or particle?
It is more appropriately a book of linguistic reasoning. It makes the common mistake of assuming the world is made of words and follows the same rules as the words.
If interested in this type of reasoning I would recomend Korzybski's Science of Sanity. It not only shows how to use linguistic reasoning, but does so with a firm understanding of its limits.
