This review is from: The Trivium: The Liberal Arts of Logic, Grammar and Rhetoric (Paperback)
I think this book is horrible. Its like someone took a dictionary and arbitrarily divided it into chapters. Its page after page of definitions, with very few illustrative examples. The authors approach to teaching seems to be to just list a bunch of facts without any thought as to how best to impart this knowledge to a student. As reference material it might have some use, but not as a book to work through on you own in order to learn the arts of Grammar, Logic and Rhetoric.
