A literal game with game pieces and a board (not included with the e-book) meant to teach logic. Rather too dry and pedantic for me. I couldn't get into it and quit.

*****

This is a book designed to teach mathematical logic to someone who is interested in the subject. It is written in a way to make the subject approachable even by children. I feel this is a great book for anyone who is interested in learning more about mathematical logic in a fun way. The book is perhaps not the most exhaustive study of logic; but I give it a top rating because it is wonderfully less dry read than your typical math book.

Even though I am a women of logic this book did not, and never will make sense too me. And even though many pepole have liked this book including my niece I'm am sure that this book will be a waste of our short meaningful life. We are not robots. We do not need a manual for our own individual logic so to speak. So as any self respecting women of normal citizen I quote that this book will not help, change, or inspire us so I would not read this book.
