"The book develops formal logic rigorously, but with an approach that students will find clear and accessible, especially with respect to the explanations of key concepts and the featured "walk-throughs" of proof techniques, etc."
"I would describe the book as a 'real logic book that is about as accessible as it gets."

In some of the earlier editions, inductive logic, axiom systems, and alternative logics (e.g., modal logic) were included in the text themselves. In the current (12th) edition these chapters are available through Cengage Compose. This is a wise course of action, since adding them to the book itself would probably raise the price to the prohibitive levels. At the same time, instructors who feel that such topics are important in a general logic course can still order them for their students.
About the only drawback of this book is the price (even without the supplemental material). However, a check of other standard logic texts shows that it is not out of line.
