I appreciate your patience with me. I understand that learning logic is a long process even with a teacher, and perhaps not really practical for a middle-aged person without a teacher. What do you think, Nicole?

You could give this book by Peter Kreeft a try, "Socratic Logic": http://www.amazon.com/Socratic-Logic-3-1...pd_sim_b_1

It is hardly perfect, but he explains things in a clear and sometimes humorous manner.  It has good, simple excercises.  One of the major points about traditional logic is that it is just explicating how people think by default, so I would not say it is "beyond" anybody who applies themselves.  :)

I was actually going to recommend that very book, and as for her concerns about attempting this without a teacher in middle age, I certainly hope those concerns are unfounded, because I'm doing exactly that (I'm 57).
