Feb 05, Nandakishore Varma rated it really liked it Shelves: Deferring this for the time being. I love logic, and I need more time to wrap my head around the concepts of deductive logic. The book explains these concepts in very simple terms, and very good for a novice like me, who love puzzles.
So I am giving it a four-star rating anyway. However, can anyone who has gestall strong grounding in logic tell me where I am going wrong with the following argument?

Jul 04, Ray rated it really liked it. Minor errors here and there so read this with a watchful eye. Otherwise a great introduction into Logic.
Apr 04, Micheal rated it really liked it Shelves: A good introduction and not a lot more. This book is just really for those who are trying to start with logic and have no previous knowledge of it. Jan 11, Tom rated it liked it.
A really interesting book, I can see how an understanding of formal logic can be an asset in verbal or written discourse. However, the latter half of the section inrroduction Propositional Logic becomes uncear when it begins to discuss ‘truth trees’, I’m still a little unclear as to how they work after reading the chapters regarding them. Jul 09, Cain S.
This is surely among the most concise, yet discursive, introductory book on logic.
And I’d like to destall read it before some of the other logic books I read when I first became interested in the subject. Mar 15, Yupar marked it as to-read.
