Concise, engaging, great for self-learners
The Kindle edition is a little strange; I can't seem to find the references diagrams in it, although web searching the book will help you on those occasions.
It's a short book that touches mostly on the basics of symbolic logic, so it might be stuff that you've already learned in middle school math class. However, Carroll will probably make this topic a thousand times clearer than your teacher could dream to. He simplifies most propositions into one of only three forms, so you wouldn't have a hard time remembering. And if you're struggling with converting sentences into letters, you have his logic diagrams to aid you reach your conclusions (he claims his diagrams to be much more efficient than Euler's and more complete than Venn's, although he's kinda pushing it on that later claim. His diagrams are definitely simpler to use for small discussions).
His comments on other popular views of the topic are a must-read; they will let you judge where Carroll and his book stand in the topic before you move on to his subsequent writings or to other authors. Now wish me luck as I try to find a similarly great summary of Russell and Whitehead's epic

Read information about the authorThe Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by the pen name Lewis Carroll, was an English author, mathematician, logician, Anglican clergyman and photographer.
His most famous writings are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass as well as the poems "The Hunting of the Snark" and "Jabberwocky", all considered to be within the genre of literary nonsense.
Oxford scholar, Church of England Deacon, University Lecturer in Mathematics and Logic, academic author of learned theses, gifted pioneer of portrait photography, colourful writer of imaginative genius and yet a shy and pedantic man, Lewis Carroll stands pre-eminent in the pantheon of inventive literary geniuses.
He also has works published under his real name.
