We recommend that you arm yourself with it whilst keeping it out of the hands of others. Only buy this book as a gift if you are sure that you can trust the recipient. </font></div><br/><div align=left> </div><br/><div align=left><font face=Arial color=#231f20 size=1>In this witty and infectious book, Madsen Pirie provides a complete guide to using—and indeed abusing—logic in order to win arguments. He identifies with devastating examples all the most common fallacies popularly used in arguments. We all like to think of ourselves as clear-headed and logical—but all readers will find in this book fallacies of which they themselves are guilty. The author shows you how to simultaneously strengthen your own thinking and identify the weaknesses in other people arguments. And, more mischievously, Pirie also shows how to be deliberately illogical—and get away with it! This book will make you maddeningly smart: your family, friends and opponents will all wish that you had never read it.</font></div><br/><div> </div><font face=Arial color=#231f20 size=1> </font> <br/><div align=left><font face=Arial color=#231f20 size=1>The book includes entries on:<br/></font><font face=Arial size=1>‧ </font><font face=Arial color=#231f20 size=1>Affirming the consequent</font></div><font face=Arial size=1> </font> <br/><div align=left><font face=Arial size=1>‧ </font><font face=Arial color=#231f20 size=1>Blinding with science<br/></font><font face=Arial size=1>‧ </font><font face=Arial color=#231f20 size=1>Conclusion which denies premises</font></div><br/><div align=left><font face=Arial size=1>‧ </font><font face=Arial color=#231f20 size=1>Emotional appeals</font></div><br/><div align=left><font face=Arial size=1>‧ </font><font face=Arial color=#231f20 size=1>The Exception that proves the rule</font></div><br/><div align=left><font face=Arial size=1>‧ </font><font face=Arial color=#231f20 size=1>Half-concealed qualification</font></div><br/><div align=left><font face=Arial size=1>‧ </font><font face=Arial color=#231f20 size=1>Poisoning the well</font></div><br/><div align=left><font face=Arial size=1>‧ </font><font face=Arial color=#231f20 size=1>Positive conclusion from negative premise</font></div><br/><div align=left><font face=Arial size=1>‧ </font><font face=Arial color=#231f20 size=1>Shifting the burden of proof</font></div><br/><div align=left><font face=Arial size=1>‧ </font><font face=Arial color=#231f20 size=1>Trivial questions</font> <br/><div><font face=Arial size=1>‧ </font><font face=Arial color=#231f20 size=1>Wishful thinking</font></div></div>>
