Review:

Comments on the first edition:^I Spangler knows today's students. She has written a text that is developed in the same outlines [as Oesterle, Smith, and Kane], but in a language and style suited to our present student population...The result is anadmirable textbook which brings together something of the Middle Ages' famous trivium of logic, grammar, and rhetoric....Spangler has the gift for repeating the doctrine on each point of logic over and over but in such a pleasant and even entertaining way that the student is not bored but delighted at the almost effortless progress achieved in each chapter.^RRR (Raymond Smith)
