Concise, engaging, great for self-learners

The Kindle edition is a little strange; I can't seem to find the references diagrams in it, although web searching the book will help you on those occasions.

It's a short book that touches mostly on the basics of symbolic logic, so it might be stuff that you've already learned in middle school math class. However, Carroll will probably make this topic a thousand times clearer than your teacher could dream to. He simplifies most propositions into one of on
Terrible format. Got the free electronic copy. This is some pretty ''special interest'' stuff. Felt like a mix of reading someone going through a delusional mental breakdown and an artistic way to over complicate simple basic notions. Might be worth going through this with a proposed ''genial friend'' and a hard copy of this book in hand. Overall ,left me in a state of WTF.
In many ways, a fascinating book, though I do admit I didn't actually do all of the exercises and quite a lot of the stuff was already known to me, I still enjoyed reading it and it was very interesting to see some of Carroll's other work.

Lewis Carroll presents a delightfully light-hearted approach to predicate logic, in illustrating the very principles of logic that underly even the furthest reaches of mathematical practice.

The Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican clergyman and photographer.

His most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass as well as the poems "The Hunting of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky", all considered to be within the genre of literary nonsense.
