Logic in bite-sized pieces

This collection of fallacies was educational and entertaining -often a rarity in books on the subject. It gave a clear voice performance, a hearty sampling of every day fallacies & true-believer fallacies, and even named some fallacies that are common enough that they deserve names even though they may receive less attention elsewhere. I may try other fallacy collections, but would not be surprised to find this the finest collection of mass distributed, affordable audiotomes. My only complaint is that he didn't go after Islam with even a third, even a fifth, of the contention that he mustered against Christianity for it's adherents common fallacies.

Important topic not suited for audio format.

This is an important topic but does not work well as an audiobook. For this intersected I would recommend text format.

Does Bo Bennett only know of Christians who are illogical?

The study of logical fallacies is always helpful.
I like Bo Bennett's humor yet I sense a chip on his shoulder. There is still a lot he can come to understand about religion and morality and the spiritual realm but it feels he has no desire to do so. As someone who is just starting my pursuit of logic and philosophy, this was a fun, easy read but the tone of it felt bitter in that Mr. Bennett has angst against many people who believe in God, Messiahs and leprechauns, as he seems to put them all in the same pot.
I myself, have more against Christians who use fallacious reasoning than I have against Christianity itself.
The book was helpful to me. But I'd love to hear Bo Bennett say that many spiritual/religious people are capable of being logical and reasonable. I seemed to wonder if Mr. Bennett thought that was possible.

Pretty good!

This is one of those books that I'm tempted to grab a hard cover copy of because I think the way that it's visually laid out might help me process it better. It reads very much like an encyclopedia. It has great points to make and helps you see the world and conversations around you in a different light almost right away. He throws in some wonderful humor too!

A heading is required.

Loved it. Only thing wrong with it is that it moves so fast. Quota fulfilled.

Too much Christian bashing

We Christians are like fish in a barrel. Try being a bit braver and sprinkle some Muslim and atheist irrationalities in there a bit.

This book embarrasses me, it's that bad. I wish I knew how to delete it, not only from my device, but also from my library.
