I know there are only so many ways to present formal logic to students, but this book is no substitute for a good instructor. It's calculations and formulas are precise, but its explanations are extremely wordy. What takes this book three or four chapters to explain could easily be explained by an articulate logician in about ten minutes. Still, it can be a very handy reference, so I may shelf it for future use.
