Download Nonsense: Red Herrings, Straw Men and Sacred Cows: How We Abuse Logic in Our Everyday Language eBook
by Robert J. Gula
Nonsense is the best compilation and study of verbal logical fallacies . Perhaps I ask for more than the book offers to deliver.
It is a handbook of the myriad ways we go about being illogical―how we deceive others and ourselves. All in all, the book was very good. I was very pleased with the chapter on syllogisms (Formal Logic) at the end, and then the summary and recap of all the "fallacies" and their variants covered in the book. This was an excellent book, and a quick read. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to enhance their critical-thinking skills.
