Overview

This book is aimed at newcomers to the field of logical reasoning, particularly those who, to borrow a phrase from Pascal, are so made that they understand best through visuals. I have selected a small set of common errors in reasoning and visualized them using memorable illustrations that are supplemented with lots of examples.

The hope is that the reader will learn from these pages some of the most common pitfalls in arguments and be able to identify and avoid them in practice.

    A little gem

    I stumbled upon this book recently, and I was surprised how concise and illustrative it was. Thank you for doing it and also for licensing it cc. I hope I can use it for a class someday.

    worthwhile reference

    This is an excellent crash-course on logic. The one thing I'd really like to change is the size of the font; the resizing function on my Nook did not work at all, which made the experience rather an ordeal to read with my old, weak eyesight.

    Forget it!

    What's the logic behind writing a book with the print so small that it's nearly impossible to read? This book gives new meaning to "read the fine print." I can't review it because I couldn't read it!
