This is a well-written, engaging, and often humorous collection of argumentative mistakes--with illustrations from literature, newspapers, philosophers, and even popular culture--that people often make when arguing or advocating, or that people often fall for because they don't know any better. You need no formal training in logic or rhetoric to enjoy and appreciate this little book. It will sharpen your critical-thinking skills, making you a more discerning and discriminating student, consumer, and citizen. This manual is ideal for senior high school, college, and university students, and for wise people in general who want to become wiser.
