A clever way to make dense and theoretical arguments about logic utterly accessible. I found myself reviewing a lifetime of arguments, and arguers, in my mind as I read this. I wrote down all of the types of bad arguments and will have fun categorizing future arguments accordingly.

I just saw the book online and promptly tried to buy a hard copy on Amazon. It's utterly charming.

The book belongs on everyone's shelf next to an early edition of Strunk & White.

I gave this as a gift to some friends for the holidays but managed to give it a thorough read before wrapping it up, and I must say this is a must for every coffee table. This goes doubly so for houses that have children. Not only does it teach rhetorical skills and provide adroit methods of defusing fallacy, but it also teaches critical thinking skills, all with beautiful illustration. A must have for any thinking person!

Who makes books like this anymore? This book is a very well made hard cover book with cloth covering. The illustrations excellent, and well printed. Ali has a great book here. I would recommend it highly as a gift for someone, possibly a pre-teen.

Very well put together, the illustrations are adorable (and very illustrative!) and overall it's a quick read that avoids being simplistic when explaining its subject matter.

Minor errors in proofreading and perhaps organization aside, this book is a good introduction for adults. Children might find the illustrations useful but the language might not be readily understandable for children under 12 (and the occasional 15 year old.) Great opportunity to talk to your kid and discuss each argument as you both go along?

Required reading in my house. That's all I have to say - I don't require much, but you need to read this book if you wanna hang out at my place. Or at least start an argument ;)

I have been waiting for this book to come into print and when it did, I bought two of them as gifts. One for a friend and my husband (they both loved it). It's a beautiful book and the content is delightful. I emailed Ali's site to thank him and he personally emailed me right back! I love the idea of being able to support a real artist. This is a great book to give anyone who likes to argue!

This book was recommended by my daughter- a big fan. When she saw it under the Christmas tree she was thrilled.
