I would recommend this to anyone taking a class in Logic who needs a bit more help or just to be sure that they understand what they're learning.
On the one hand, I believe that the book does a great job of introducing the basic of Logic and all of its symbols and syntax. It makes a great complement to my class. However, it often becomes very heady and can be hard to understand unless you are fully committed and make sure you have a grasp of one topic completely before moving on to the next.
One of my largest complaints about the book is that it provides practice problems with no answers. This means that the problems are basically worthless to me in the sense that even if I feel that I know how to do all the problems in the chapter I have no way of knowing if I truly understand the more complicated subject matter through private study.
I would still recommend this book to anyone who is genuinely interested in the subject AND has a competent mentor/teacher to guide them. If you're going it alone though, it may be a little rough.

This is really an awful book. The advantages are that it's relatively cheap and light, the disadvantages are everything else. Read morePublished on February 21, 2012 by Michigoon
This is an older book, so it is a little wordy. The wording of explanations for rules is a bit strange, but its okay because Lemmon follows all explanations with examples.Published on February 22, 2011 by RandieB
I have got to admit, this is a very difficult book to follow. It is higher order logic--very difficult material for most people to grasp--hard for me and I tutored it. Read morePublished on December 31, 2008 by Jackie Barton
Okay. This book is cheap which is nice. BUT it is NOT HELPFUL. Even for someone with a background in logic this book is worthless, but especially for a beginner. Read morePublished on August 10, 2008 by QuixoticOther
