I made the most of this book by creating an outline, then focused in on the details. One of the projects was to pick and advertisement, then analyze it using some of the points brought up in the chapter. It made for a good critique on style and effectiveness of the image. The chapter was focused on using persuasion via imagery.
Combining all the elements from the various chapters would produce an effective argument and would create useful skills in life and in business. Incidentally, the title "Everything's an Argument" was concise. The author makes an effective argument that everything is truly an argument. This is a fair if you plan to join a college debate team, it's geared toward everyday use in business or with future classes. I expands the skill of argument beyond rhetoric, and illustrates examples and techniques commonly used in advetising, politics, and writing, I think my time was well spent with this book considering the cost of college and university.
I have to admit that I didn't enjoy the book as much as I wanted. If all liberals in the classroom agree with something, but cannot prove it, that could be a liberal bias...
My advice to the authors is they should try to focus on making it completely even. I know there are some excellent conservative authors in there, but this bias needs to go.
