Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.

Possibly the idea of the book is not to tell you what to do but show you how to do it?
