This book is the definitive introduction to logic for the nonmathematician (i.e., the math amateur who doesn't care about the underpinnings of the foundations of set theory and logic). Just about the only thing omitted is ternary imaginary logic (i.e., 1=real-truth, 0=falsehood, i or –1=imaginary-truth), although a generalized form is presented in multi-world logic. Emil Post's n-ary logic is completely omitted, although perhaps a portion of it is effective addressed by multi-world logic.
