Customer Reviews

The book was very clear in the way it presents itself.
Steven
There are no headings breaking up the chapters like in normal textbooks, the examples are confusing, and the terms are not consistent.

The text arrived well before my semester started and was in great condition. It is a dry read for those who are not particularly into law jargon, but it is very easy to follow and can serve as a great guide to increasing your critical thinking skills.

Format: Paperback
As a professor of argumentation theory, I thought this book would be a good supplement to class material. I used it for one semester, and it will be the last time. Unfortunately, it was of little use: it does not say anything that you cannot read elsewhere. Of course, that is not a crime for a textbook. Indeed, that is what attracted me to the book in the first place: its Index and Table of Contents seemed to present all the material I wanted to cover. But, when you consider that it has major organizational issues (i.e. contradicting the relationships between terms, using loose definitions, using technical language unnecessarily, and presenting a chapter outline that makes more sense for a dissertation than for a course) its coverage becomes very thin. From the professor's perspective, it became a task to clarify and sometimes controvert what the book said.

This text book is good for really basic definitions on the terms in argumentation. However, when using it for class and trying to learn to structure the arguments, it is little help. When the text gives examples, they are outdated and only confuse the reader. With that it also gives confusing directions on how to structure argument ranging from fact to policy. Otherwise this textbook would have been great.
