Sixteen hundred years ago Augustine wrote, "The science of reasoning is of very great service in searching into and unraveling all sorts of questions that come up in Scripture....The validity of logical sequences is not a thing devised by men, but it is observed and noted by them that they may be able to learn and teach it; for it exists eternally in the reason of things, ...more

In my near-thirty years of life, I've never had lessons in logic. I've had little bits here and there, and I knew how to construct some semblance of an argument, but this is the first time I've ever actually read regarding the subject. This book serves as an excellent primer to the introduction of the study of logic.

It includes some exercises, but I wish that the answers to and explanations of the exercises would be available. In the book's brevity, it sometimes was too terse. Nevertheless, it w
In reviewing this book, I have to preface it by saying I finished it during my honeymoon. Reading a book on logic might not sound like the most romantic read for such an occasion, but under other circumstances others might enjoy this book more.

The way Clark goes about teaching logic is different th ...more

This book, along with the Lecture series available from, were extremely helpful in teaching me how to think logically, that is correctly, that is the way God thinks. It is deplorable that logic is not the foundation of any type of education system.

Essential text on logic and reasoning. Clark presents an advanced, deep-dive into the primary elements of logic. Numerous tables and graphical illustrations are provided to aid in categorization. Why isn't this mandatory study material for all high-schools or at least college freshmen?

Hard for me to follow his A/B/C/D diagrams and seemed a little long winded. Finally caught on to what he was saying in the last few chapters. Short, though, but dense.
