Book Description Penguin, UK, 2005. Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 256 indexed pages. This book guides readers through those hair-raising times when logic is at odds with common sense. Whether we realize it or not, we all use logic every day. Logic helps us make decisions, avert misfortunes and solve problems, as the human mind naturally seeks patterns, structures and connections. But poor communication can put up barriers to effective reasoning - our use of language can lead us to be misunderstood. In this stimulating and practical book, Deborah Bennett describes the often cloudy relationship between language and logic, with illuminating explanations of the many different ways in which logic is used. She gives real-life examples of maddeningly illogical aspects of everyday life - from forms and traffic signs to political speeches and advertising - and provides all the tools of reasoning to help avoid common errors in logic. Complete with puzzles, questions and diagrams you can try yourself, Logic Made Easy is the ideal guide to help you to make your ideas and language clear, think well and become a more logical human being. Remainder mark to lower page edges. Size: 12mo. Bookseller Inventory # 056101
