    1. This is a very good introduction to logic. Quine deals with technical details, as well as the considerations that go into navigating these technicalities this way or that way. I picked at "The Logic Book" but was always confused over just why these connectives and those operations were considered to be THE elements of logic. Surely, you can "see" it, and rationalize it, but anything that claims the mantle of logic must be rigor itself; I don't want to hear some appeal to it's pleasing simplicity [...]

    2. An excellent book, the author is a lucid writer and powerful logician, no doubt. Be sure to brush up on your basic symbolic logic at first though as he uses some symbolic expressions for his key arguments (and they are necessary to understand his reasoning).

    3. Kind of dull, I didn't get the sense of vibrant engagement with the subject matter that Quine usually provides. Perhaps I've just been reading too much about logic these days.
