About the Author:


Stan Baronett is the author of Logic, Second Edition.

Review:


"The key strength of Logic as a whole is Baronett's style and ability to speak to students. The explanations are clear, on point, and easy to grasp. The examples connect with our intuitive ability to reason and ease students into the rigors of formal logic, without sacrificing any clarity or precision. This text puts logic within the reach of every student, and faculty will find it to be comprehensive and well organized. It is clearly superior to other texts on the market."--Nancy Slonneger-Hancock, Northern Kentucky University


"Baronett's book is superior in its class as a logic textbook. It's filled with wonderful and pertinent exercise problems with answers easily accessed, which are always accompanied by clever and comprehensible explanations. And Baronett's supplemental products are far and away the best I have seen in the field."--Lorraine Arangno, University of Colorado Colorado Springs


"Logic contains a wealth of information, examples, and exercises from all walks of life, is flexible enough to support differing course needs, and has the comprehensiveness necessary for teachers and the relevance and excitement necessary to sustain students' interest. I find it far superior to Hurley in terms of its content, organization, and clarity of writing."--Joia Lewis Turner, Saint Paul College


"The examples and sample problems are wonderful! They draw from sources that students may find familiar, such as popular culture, advertising, medicine, literature, politics, and even famous arguments in the history of philosophy."--Kevin DeLapp, Converse College


"The substantive explanations are very, very clear indeed, and are better in my view than those in Hurley. Logic covers all that I use in Hurley, is more accessible, has a better online package, and is cheaper. An exceptionally clear and accessible text that's perfect for an introductory logic course."--James Stacey Taylor, The College of New Jersey


come across; plain, practical expository language; plenty of clarifying examples; and lots of interesting exercises crafted to satisfy students through a range of skill levels. It is airy by comparison to other texts, light and transparent. With all of the ancillary items, instructor resources, and support available from OUP, you should really take a look at it."--Ian MacKinnon, University of Akron


"This edition of Logic is probably the best logic book that I have seen in the last twenty years. The explanations, examples, and exercises are very good, much better than the usual discussions. The book is very student-friendly and very sensible and has excellent coverage of the basic concepts and tons of exercises, nicely graduated. I like that many of the exercises are taken from works of literature and from newspapers; this helps to underscore the applicability of logic to, well, just about everything. Chapter 5 has the great virtue of allowing one to follow either the Aristotelian or the modern interpretations of categorical logic. Usually, in fact almost standardly, these are mushed together into a hideous thing."--Nathaniel Nicol, Washington State University


"I am drawn by Logic's tone--clear and down to earth, and very accessible. I also like its balance of sources: literature, current events, the law, etc. The cost is a huge advantage that this text has over all of its major competition."--Reginald Williams, Bakersfield College


"It covers much of the same material as Hurley's and Copi's texts but, unlike those texts, Baronett's text appears to be written more with the student in mind. I would place it above both Copi's and Hurley's texts because of the cost, accessibility, variety of material, and its presentation."--Alexander Miller, Piedmont Technical College


"In Chapter 9, Baronett presents predicate logic in the most accessible and non-intimidating manner of all the course texts that I have used. The examples really do illustrate what the author is intending to convey in a clear and non-confusing way. And the exercises do a splendid job in bolstering the covered material."--Joseph Okello, Asbury Theological Seminary


In Logic, Stan Baronett does what many logic texts fail to do. Namely, he clearly explains both inductive and deductive logical concepts in language that students can appreciate, and does so with candor and humor."--Basil Smith, Saddleback College
