"...The readiblity is excellent. The chapter summaries and charts are appropriate and helpful. [Introduction to Logic] delivers a formidable subject in an easy-to-ingest manner. ...The explanations are easy enough for the novice while rigorous enough to remain a reference work for someone who may occasionally need to return to to a definition of some fallacy or another or needs a quick discussion of asyllogistic inference, for example. ...The text covers Aristotilian and syllogistic logic quite well. ...I think the book's strongest point is the presentation of the informal fallacies. It provides a nice aid for students to sharpen their argumentive skills; even when they may be unfamiliar topics." -- Jason Flato, Georgia Perimeter College
"[Of the book's pedagogy:] well thought out and organized." -- David Vessey, Grand Valley State University
"The strength of the book is that, no matter when a student reads it, it always is sure to have the latest and most pertinent examples..." -- Drew Berkowitz, Bridgewater State College
"The explanation of scientific inquiry is particularly lucid and thorough. Compatibility, predictive power, falsifiability, and simplicity are also very well explained.
