Product description

"Professor Bennett entertains as she instructs," writes "Publishers Weekly" about the penetrating yet practical "Logic Made Easy." This brilliantly clear and gratifyingly concise treatment of the ancient Greek discipline identifies the illogical in everything from street signs to tax forms. Complete with puzzles you can try yourself, "Logic Made Easy" invites readers to identify and ultimately remedy logical slips in everyday life. Designed with dozens of visual examples, the book guides you through those hair-raising times when logic is at odds with our language and common sense. "Logic Made Easy" is indeed one of those rare books that will actually make you a more logical human being.

Review quote

"In this case, you "can judge a book by its cover--or at least its title: the author makes a promise right at the start and then follows through by making logic easy for readers to understand."
