MASTERING LOGICAL FALLACIES
The Definitive Guide to Flawless Rhetoric and Bulletproof Logic
Designed to show students how to separate the solid from the specious, this lighthearted guide identifies 60 fallacies, defines them, provides both hypothetical and real-world examples, explains the mistake that underlies each one, provides "comebacks" for exposing and declawing fallacious arguments, and describes the larger significance of each fallacy. Examples: appeal to authority, cherry picking, circular reasoning, false analogy, lying with stats, magical thinking, moving the goalposts, non sequitur, red herring, slippery slope, and straw man.
