UK Kirkus Review » This quirky book offers an entertaining introduction to logic for anyone with a serious interest in understanding how logic works and why it works the way it does. By using ordinary language, characters such as the snake and the fox, and entertaining illustrations, the author makes a highly complex subject simpler and more fun than it would be otherwise. Penetrate the jungle of formal and informal fallacies, inductive and deductive reasoning, learn to recognize the crime of 'putting words into someone's mouth' and discover cheating tactics almost painlessly. (Kirkus UK)
