4.0 out of 5 stars Good grounding, but be prepared to work at it, 14 Oct. 2013

This review is from: Logic (Paperback)
A good solid introduction to logic (in the philosophical sense), with sensible exercises to work through to test your understanding along the way.

And that's the thing - personally I think this book is best worked through with a buddy who is equally interested in the topic, or a tutor who knows something about the subject, or at the very least someone who can check the answers through with you. Sometimes that can be a good way of telling whether you're really grasped it - explaining it to someone who has never encountered the ideas presented here before formally and seeing if they understand you!

I'd suggest pairing this up with something lighter alongside, and breaking up your progress into manageable pieces, because there is a lot to wrap your head around here, before you even start contemplating other logics...

Overall, as I say, a really nice solid, readable introduction - but be prepared to work at it to really get it!
