1. Euphonics (how alphabets sound to a poet?)
3. Poetic meter
4. Logic (deductive, inductive,...)
5. Rhetoric (or how to make a point in speaking or writing)
Of these, I particularly liked 2, 4, 5 and 6. These 'chapters' are actually reproductions of slim books available separately (cheaper to buy them together in this binding). Each section is written quite clearly, and serves as good reference / revision if you are already familiar with the matter. If not, it gives you a basic foundation, though it may require careful and focused reading. All the chapters are illustrated in a rather fun way. The writing style is also non-pedantic. Though the book is presented as a classic, the treatment of topics is quite modern and up to date.
The binding is rather good - though I found the book a little heavy due to the weight of paper that's been used. The only complaint I have is that the publishers have had a bit too much fun playing around with fonts and typefaces. This can get a little distracting as multiple fonts on the same page make it look cluttered. Some font choices are rather wacky - e.g. a dripping font used for fallacies.
Excellent value for money - definitely a book to keep in your collection or to gift to a friend.
It is a learning in Logic, Reason, and Rhetoric that predates the modern indoctrination system of education.
Bigger print, please. Some of us are over 40 (or 50). If someone wants to take a book camping, they'll bring an iphone.
