The Art of the Argument shocks the dying art of rational debate back to life, giving you the essential tools you need to fight the escalating sophistry, falsehoods, and vicious personal attacks that have displaced intelligent conversations throughout the world. At a time when we need reasonable and empirical discussions more desperately than ever, The Art of the Argument smashes through the brain-eating fogs of sophistry and mental manipulation, illuminating a path to benevolent power for all who wish to take it.

This book is not about arguments at all, and does not give you any tools for winning arguments like promised. Instead it is a cheap rant about the authors current political opponents. The book feels like an unedited transcript of an episode of Free Domain Radio, with all the logical falacies still left in.
