We are using this textbook for my critical thinking course. It does an excellent job of making informal logic interesting. Even when you are reading about things you already know, Moore and Parker make it a fun read by adding in plenty of real-life examples. The exercises for each chapter are tedious but straightforward and effective -- they require a lot of time to complete but I always have a better understanding of the material after completing them. I would recommend this book for any informal logic course.

This was one of the books that I used for my Introduction to Logic class when I was in high school. Not only are the concepts explained clearly but they are layed out in a way that does not talk down to you. Its fun to read yet very practical in the sense that there are places where the author(s) correlate informal/formal logic concepts with the real world. One example shows how certain rules in Truth-Functional Logic relate to electrical circuits. In particular for AP English Students, this book can be a great complement to your other required texts. I recommend this to high school/college students, professionals, or enthusiasts who are seeking to better understand and improve their critical thinking skills.

This is a very well written textbook, entertaining to read. The authors make this such an easy book to read with clever wit and relevant easy to relate examples. Each chapter contains a great deal of exercises at the end to have plenty of practice with, so you can ensure you'll understand what was covered. The critical thinking techniques in this text are not the easiest things to absorb but with their writing you'll soon master these topics before you even realize it.

I enjoyed this book, it gave me insite on new terminology on how an argument can be evaluated. I found out that news media use a lot of the fallacies described in the text. Also, many of the fallacies mentioned are used everyday through normal conversations between people. I recommmend this book for reading so that a person would understand how our language has other definitions.

Moore and Parker's book is the best text I've used for Logic and Critical Thinking. In fact, I've used it for all ten editions. I would not have stuck with a book that long if I didn't think it was the best. It's always current, the exercises are good and helpful, much of the book is amusing while still imparting critical information. I would recommend this for anyone.

Needed this for my Philosophy 102 class and it has critical thinking questions and answers in the back, and theories from philosophers. My teacher loves this edition and required it even though it's older, because it does a better job of explaining things than the newer ones.
