“Everybody argues; not everybody knows how to argue.”

This phrase is incredibly accurate. You see, logical fallacies are everywhere. They can be used to manipulate people or turn an argument sour, derailing it from the get-go. 

This audiobook will give you the tools to fight logical fallacies and make your arguments completely bulletproof logically.

Moreover, if you want to be a great debater, it will help you learn all the ins and outs of logical fallacies so you can laugh (inside) as your opponent gets stuck in them. 

This will most likely be a revolutionary audiobook for you, and once you are finished, your critical thinking skills will have grown tenfold.

  • Logic
  • Formal Fallacies
  • And informal Fallacies

IT'S THE BEST!

Offers the absolutely best approach to a daily understanding of when language is being used by politicians,salespeople and others to deceive you! Reading this book, divided into small segments for a solid understanding, will save you the trouble of taking a college-level philosophy course in symbolic logic.

Might make life easier.

Not only have I used the book to construct better arguments, I have been able to defend myself better (no more successfully) against my wife and her use of Facebook references for her base data.

Beneficial to high school or college kids.

Nothing new here for experienced persons. It all seemed like common sense (which is not common enough) but you never know when you'll learn something from a different point if view but still good for high school kids.

life changing logic

Pure logic. I also like that he is using no political examples when he can help it.

Interesting, A Little Disappointed.

Enjoyed the read. It was very interesting to read during this period. Many parallels between the speakers and the content. Still I am a bit disappointed with some descriptions.

Fascinating read.

Taken right out of current discourse the book reveals many of the tricks of the political trade. A must read for everyone.

Clear, concise thinking.

This great audible contains enough text to get the point across, but not so much that it becomes tedious. Teaches how to think correctly. Well done.

Can it get any better.

It's a keeper when having discussions where emotions are the battleground and not logic. Pull up the fallacy the person is presenting and show them the analogy presented to their "argument" and how it presents itself as a fallacy

It just isn't presented in a real life manner.

I'm an avid reader (and debater of everything) and I still found myself drifting off into lala land while reading this book. It's an ok book, in my opinion,and would be greatly suitable for perhaps a debate team or speech class.

Decent book with a couple of weaknesses.

Overall, very good overview of basic logic. However, I noticed a few biases, and also some of his counter arguments in the suggested responses to the proponent to be illogical, illustrating he was making a couple of illogical fallacies himself!

Starts off well, but quickly degrades itself.

It started out to be interesting, but then the author almost appears to lose interest in his own argument, or has gotten distracted. Instead of continuing to present his material, he goes off on political quips. The book becomes more about why he dislikes Christians and Republicans. This happens about 1/4 the way into the book. Is this a book about debate tactics, or just an excuse to express his distain for his political opposites? Less politics. More subject matter. It is disappointing.
