An engagingly written, carefully reasoned defence of ‘objective truth’ as a respectable, even desirable goal and standard.—Barry Allen, The Globe and Mail

True to Life is a passionate demonstration that truth matters; it is strikingly clear and painstakingly reasoned, and ranges from technical work in the philosophy of logic to a discussion of the role of truth-telling in government.

Richard Halicks, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
