I meant five stars, but I clicked and clicked on that fifth star and it wouldn't color in. Oh well.
I have been pretty well immersed in this textbook, it's attached CD, and workbook since I received it over a month ago. I've never studied Logic before, and I find it neatly applicable to my everyday life. It is the study of arguments, their validity or invalidity, strength or weakness. I have found it useful in editing my own spoken arguments ("Emotionally charged!" it might be- or it might commit some other fallacy of reasoning).
The book is well-organized with lots of practice problems, and the attached CD is even more help to me. It's like having a personal teacher who is responsive to my every mistake and achievement (in the problems) and he or she never gets impatient! For a while at the beginning, I thought that, while I sat thinking about what the answer would be, the speaker (sometimes a male-Hurley himself I found out, and sometimes a female) would break the silence with a repetion of the question...but they don't; you can work at your own pace and not worry about how long it takes you to think things out.
The workbook is a very useful sidekick to my patient disembodied teacher and well-organized book. Since I can write in it, I get the feeling that, as I work through the pages, I am making real progress. Not only does it have practice problems, it also has a synopsis of each section's contents, so you don't always need your text as reference when you are practicing the problems and need to be reminded of something.
I recommend that if you want this book, try to get one with a CD still attached (some of the used one's may be missing it). I really feel so prepared after receiving my disembodied teacher's patient feedback. The workbook enhanced my learning also, for I am a visual learner, and pages I completed gave me an illustration of my accomplishment. Mind, if you write much larger than the width of a standard ballpoint pen, you may need extra paper.
