This book contains a lot of everyday examples, more than a logic text usually does. It emphasizes the application of logic, featuring logic as both an academic and a practical subject. This is a text written in English, but it is especially suitable for students in Chinese society, as the Chinese cultural background shapes some of the illustrations and presentation. In addition to arguments, logic puzzles and other applications of logic are featured in the text. Diversity of methods is a key characteristic of this book. Different methods that can be used to solve the same problem are introduced, and their merits and limitations discussed. It is the aim of this book to provide readers with training in thinking methods, not just knowledge of the techniques of logic. This book is also perhaps the first book ever to make use of Edwards-Venn diagrams to solve problems in syllogistic logic that have more than three terms.
