“This new edition is a significant improvement on an already excellent text. The virtues of the original remain, including clear expositions, an intuitive proof procedure that generalizes naturally from propositional logic to more advanced logics, and a wealth of problems drawn from philosophical sources. There are new chapters on the history of logic, deviant logics and the philosophy of logic, and the accompanying LogiCola program has been improved. This is a student-friendly approach to logic.” –Michael Bradie, Bowling Green State University
"Professor Gensler's Introduction to Logic is superb! Students are given a first-rate, accessible introduction to the fundamentals of logic through extensive examples from some of the great questions in the history of philosophy. Thus, students are learning philosophy even as they're doing logic. The free program accompanying the text, with its game format, is a genuine tutorial that enables students to master the concepts of each section through new examples and instant feedback. I strongly recommend this fine text for basic and more advanced courses in logic."–Jay Aultman-Moore, Waynesburg University
“This new edition of Introduction to Logic is truly a revision and not just an update. The book has been reorganized in a much more logical sequence. Virtually every chapter in the first edition has been significantly revised for greater clarity…I believe that Gensler’s Introduction to Logic is the best text available today for teaching logic. I look forward to using his book for several years to come.”–Darian C. De Bolt, University of Central Oklahoma

As a student aspiring to recieve a Ph.D. in philosophy, I would highly recommend this text to any person interested in learning logic. Dr. Gensler is a premier logician, and his skill is evident when you read this text. A bonus, an advantage held by this book over similar titles is the companion software that was developed by Dr. Gensler himself. Instructions can be found within the appendixes to download it straight from the web.
Whether you are a student of philosophy; an aspiring scientist, lawer, or otherwise; or just someone who wishes to broaden their horizons, "Introduction to Logic" by Dr. Harry Gensler is an excellent choice. I have no qualms about saying that it was mine.
I would even go so far as to recommend this book over Barwise and Etchemendy's "Language Proof and Logic". Although their software is far better, Logicola is practical and easy to use.
