I picked this up when my homeschooled son told me he wanted to learn logic. The story-based problems have been excellent illustrations of the mathematical concepts without making certain essential concepts (OR vs. AND, negation, etc.) seem unapproachable and dry.

My one complaint with the book is that the author is pretty old-fashioned in language, bordering on sexist. Still, if you can overlook that, this is a good guide to learn from.
