Philosophy of Logic
With his customary incisiveness, W. V. Quine presents logic as the product of two factors, truth and grammar--but argues against the doctrine that the logical truths are true because of grammar or language. Rather, in presenting a general theory of grammar and discussing the boundaries and possible extensions of logic, Quine argues that logic is not a mere matter of words.

An excellent book, the author is a lucid writer and powerful logician, no doubt. Be sure to brush up on your basic symbolic logic at first though as he uses some symbolic expressions for his key arguments (and they are necessary to understand his reasoning).
