Greg Restall's Logic provides concise introductions to propositional and first-order predicate logic while showing how formal logic intersects with substantial philosophical issues such as vagueness, conditionals, relevance, propositional attitudes, and opaque contents.

The author also examines the ideas behind modal logic, free logic, and other non-standard logics and discusses the nature of logic itself.
The book covers both natural deduction and tree methods for proving validity. Each chapter includes excellent suggestions for further reading and both elementary and more advanced exercises, with solutions provided on a website.
It is flexibly designed to be useable for half or full-year courses, for courses focusing exclusively on formal logic, or for a variety of approaches that would integrate topics in philosophical logic.
Restall examines many of the interesting issues raised by basic logical techniques and will undoubtedly stimulate further study in the discipline. This is a logic book designed principally for philosophers but which will also be of interest to students of computer science, cognitive science, and linguistics.

The book explains these concepts in very simple terms, and very good for a novice like me, who love puzzles. So I am giving it a four-star rating anyway.
However, can anyone who has a strong grounding in logic tell me where I am going wrong with the following argument? The premises seem to be correct, but there seems to be something wrong with the conclusion. Premise 1: In t Deferring this for the time being. View all 7 comments.
This book was a perfect example. Enjoyable from start to finish. The chapter on the meaning of 'if' was my favorite. Jul 04, Ray rated it really liked it. Minor errors here and there so read this with a watchful eye. Otherwise a great introduction into Logic.
Apr 04, Micheal rated it really liked it Shelves: philosophy , logic. A good introduction and not a lot more. This book is just really for those who are trying to start with logic and have no previous knowledge of it. Jan 11, Tom rated it liked it. A really interesting book, I can see how an understanding of formal logic can be an asset in verbal or written discourse. However, the latter half of the section on Propositional Logic becomes uncear when it begins to discuss 'truth trees', I'm still a little unclear as to how they work after reading the chapters regarding them.
Jul 09, Cain S. This is surely among the most concise, yet discursive, introductory book on logic. And I'd like to have read it before some of the other logic books I read when I first became interested in the subject. Mar 15, Yupar marked it as to-read.
