HASH(0xa0e9fc9c) out of 5 stars How every logic book should be: concise and brief April 12 2010
By Danny Yu - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For a Logic class, this was assigned to me and I was surprised at how thin this book was. Usually, I would envision a gigantic textbook for such a dense topic.

However, this book was very concise and brief, and generally, I was able to grasp the concepts. Learning should be concise, especially like we all use to in grammar school.

Insightful, brief, and easy to understand.

Overall, buy, read, and learn this book with confidence!
HASH(0xa31a990c) out of 5 stars Interesting even if you're not taking a Philosophy class! May 12 2010

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book really makes you think about what you believe and what reality really is. It challenges your way of thinking on so many levels. It helps you learn to argue a point or realize a point you believed can't be true or that you don't have the evidence to determine it to be true or false. Interesting read. Answers to odd #ed exercises in the back are helpful in determining if you have mastered the concepts or not.

HASH(0xa184bce4) out of 5 stars It works. July 31 2011

The book seems to be well- structured and does a good job of explaining complex concepts. Some of the examples seem to be flawed but my instructor doesn't use the book all that much anyway.
