Best book ever written in Logic

This book by far is the best book ever written about logic. Anyone serious about philosophy needs to very slowly traverse these words.

A classic

The book is, of course, a classic. Kant is Kant and is not easy. It may take you a week to fully digest a page or two. This is no bathroom book. Take your time and read slowly. Make sure you understand each sentence before going on to the next. The book is a masterpiece, and you will be rewarded for your diligence.

Wood-Guyer's translation is a masterpiece

I would say, the translation of Wood & Guyer is the best existing one in anglo-american space; it is far better than Smith's translation, over some 80 years ago. Not only students of kantian theoretical philosophy, but also experts in the subject will find this translation a really remarkable piece of art. The text is suitable arranged and easy to follow in the comparion both original editions (A & B, respectively), so that the reader can easily check the differences without great difficulty. I'm very happy for that, and comparing the translation with the original German text, I realize that Guyer and Wood have achieved the goal of a good service to Kant's readers. I rate the translation with 5 stars because there are no more to give; at any rate, i would gite it the maximal possible rate. Cambridge University Press can also be proud to produce such enterprise for english readers. To translators and publisher, my sincere congratulations.
