This book was required reading for my Speech Class. I'd never debated before and knew nothing about the process. I was overwhelmed when I first began to read this book; maybe flustered would be a better word for it.

After reading a few chapters I was sorry I took my Speech class because from what I read, it proved that EVERYTHING can be argued, and nobody's really right or wrong, so I felt everybody should just shut up and never say another word. I wanted to drop out of the class.

BUT, after reading and understanding philosopher Stephen Toulmin's technique of debating, I began to like debating and got an A on my first exam and totally excelled in my first debate.

Arguments and Arguing is a must have for anyone interested in the art of debating.

It was a used book and I could tell. It was handy for the communication class that I was taking and I learned some new things about arguing that I never knew. So now I picked up on some new ways to argue with my mom lol jk

I really liked this text book. it's one of the few I intend to hold on to as alot of the information applies to written and verbal arguing. Also pretty good tool for picking apart arguments lacking a firm foundation.

Well-written, easy to read, and filled w/ pertinent information. I found chapter 9 the most useful, as it contains all the elements necessary for thoroughly evaluating an argument.
