Acclaimed in all six prior editions for being clear, concise, and comprehensive, Hurley's A CONCISE INTRODUCTION TO LOGIC covers all of the standard topics for any Introductory Logic course in neatly-packaged learning units. Known for its concise, direct style that emphasizes clarity, this market-leading text avoids the peculiar quirks, technicalities, and wordiness of other logic texts.

Patrick Hurley was born in Spokane, Washington in 1942. He received his bachelor's degree in mathematics (with a Physics minor) from Gonzaga University in 1964 and his Ph.D. in philosophy of science with an emphasis in history of philosophy from Saint Louis University in 1973. In 1972 he began teaching at the University of San Diego, where his courses have included logic, philosophy of science, metaphysics, process philosophy, and legal ethics. In 1987 he received his J.D. from the University of San Diego and he is currently a member of the California Bar Association. He retired from teaching in 2008, but continues his research and writing. His interests include music, art, opera, environmental issues, fishing, and skiing.Review:
"Hurley has satisfied my goals for logic classes for a number of years. I will continue to use it. I believe that its greatest strength is that it is primarily directed toward students, rather than logicians."
"The book has gotten steadily better. Note: it was a good book to begin with."
"I have compared Hurley's book to several texts and have found it to be by far the best."
"Overall the book accomplishes MY goals and I have no plans to make a change."
"Several times a semester I ask students for anonymous written one-minute feedback on what they would keep, modify or trash about the course. While there are always a few who trash me, their teaching assistant, the acoustics in the lecture hall, the CD, logic, probability, general education or proofs, it has been several years since anyone has proposed relegating the text to the flames."
