Expose an irrational belief, keep a person rational for a day. Expose irrational thinking, keep a person rational for a lifetime.

Absolutely amazing. This book gives you tools to see the truths of communication that have vanished since the advent of the internet. It seems people (myself included) rationalize based on popularity rather than logic. This book goes along way towards putting the tools of understanding back in our hands.
Brilliant!! A definite five stars for its clarity and scope. Never quite come across a book like this. Overdue.
I thought this book was hilarious and informative. I listened to it on audible which, I believe, made the technical explanations easier to take. Now I wish I had the actual book to use as a reference.
A very extensive list of fallacies, this book lays them all out in clear English with excellent examples to help illustrate the way each fallacy is used. I have really enjoyed reading this book - it's an excellent option for when you only have a short amount of time to spend reading and, since fallacies are something everyone should be keen to avoid, the value of the content is enormous.
