"What I like perhaps most about Hurley's text is the organization of the material. His book introduces the material in step-by-step way building off of what was just learned the section before and adding just enough information to each section to simplify the whole process of learning logic." - David Weise, Gonzaga University
"This is the "gold standard" of introductory logic texts." - Frank Ryan, Kent State University
"It is the clearest text, with the best technology available." - Stephanie Semler, Radford University
"Hurley's text provides a methodical introduction to the strategies and techniques usually covered in an introductory logic course, including both formal and informal topics. Numerous exercises provide plenty of opportunity for students to practice the skills they have learned." - Allyson Mount, Keene State College
"Hurley's book is thorough and very accessible to instructors and students. One of the best logic texts on the market." - Paula Smithka, University of Southern Mississippi
