Review

"Wonderfully digestible . . . I can't think of a better way to be taught or reintroduced to these fundamental notions of logical discourse. A delightful little book." --Aaron Koblin, creative director, Google's Data Arts team "I love this illustrated book of bad arguments. A flawless compendium of flaws." --Alice Roberts, PhD, anatomist, writer, and presenter of "The Incredible Human Journey" "A whimsical, straightforward primer . . . a guide to how to strengthen--and how not to weaken--your arguments."--"Shelf Awareness," starred review "This little book takes a potentially ponderous subject (logical fallacies) and makes it wonderfully entertaining." --"Omaha World-Herald" "Bad arguments, great illustrations . . . gorgeous." --Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing.net "[A] handsome newcomer's guide to the world of logic . . .
