This book accomplished what I hoped it would: it gave me a beginner’s grasp formal logic and made me want to take a full course on the subject. At times basic and at others challenging, I forced myself to read each chapter twice so that I would not skim over the symbols and equations too quickly. I liked the brief forays into literary examples and common puzzles, and you have to appreciate such a small book dismantling the errors in the Ontological Argument, Pascal’s Wager, and the Argument from Design. Give it a try and tease your brain.
