For undergraduate-level courses in Logic, Critical Thinking, Informal Logic, and Deductive Logic.
Bridging the gap between introductory logic texts and those texts that emphasize critical thinking only, Critical Reasoning and Logic presents a process that enables students to apply proper reasoning techniques in a practical fashion. It encourages them to not only evaluate someone else's reasoning, but to apply these techniques to their own writing and reasoning.

The writing applications give the students a strong sense of the practical applications of logical principles, something missing from many texts." - Michael Coste, Front Range Community College
"A comprehensive introduction to the basics of reasoning, with helpful summaries and exercises. Both student and instructor should find this a useful tool for enhancing reasoning skills." - Scott Shalkowski, University of Leeds
"Boyd has written a wide-ranging text that will be useful for almost any kind of introductory course in logic or critical reasoning. The author is to be commended for writing an accessible text that also has plenty of rigor....Boyd's book does an effective job in covering the topics most instructors will be looking for in a textbook of this sort, but it also stands out in terms of the real-life reasoning exercises it provides and the way it focuses on practical applications." - William Lawhead, University of Mississippi
