From the Publisher
The general approach of this book to logic remains the same as in earlier editions. Following Aristotle, we regard logic from two different points of view: on the one hand, logic is an instrument or organon for appraising the correctness of reasoning; on the other hand, the principles and methods of logic used as organon are interesting and important topics to be themselves systematically investigated.

- Treatment of just about everything, from rules of inference to foundations of mathematical logic.
- A "concise" handbook excellently laid out and organized.
- Poorly written: unnecessarily convoluted grammar and sentence structure make some relatively simple issues tough to understand at first. It is NOT a cliche that philosophers are some of the worst writers in academia.
- Some sections have ridiculously long exercises (validity proofs well into the 50 steps); others have practically none.
Physically, the paperback book is not well constructed. Less than a semester has passed and everyone in my class with the paper bound version of this book has pages falling out. The glue is separating from the pages and the spine is falling apart.
Get the hardcover.
The content is okay. It might just be me, but I could use more examples and a better layout. More of the exercises could use solutions, but maybe a separate solutions manual would be more effective.
