This book includes 38 lessons on common logical fallacies and propaganda techniques, presenting them in the context in which they are often found: arguments at home, political debates, marketing, and more. It is self-teaching, meaning no other resources are needed. Using short chapters, clear examples, a touch of humor, and interesting exercises, The Fallacy Detective helps even reluctant scholars to enjoy learning how to identify fallacies.
