8 of 10 people found the following review helpful By E. Jaksetic on August 26, 2011
Format: Paperback
The author discusses the nature of fallacious arguments, and then explores a variety of fallacies that often appear in arguments. The author presents many examples to illustrate various fallacies, offers Critical Questions to help recognize and identify the various fallacies, and provides practice exercises for each chapter. Each chapter also has a section on further reading for those interested in pursuing additional discussion of the fallacies.

The book is intended as a classroom text, but it can be read and understood by an individual reader outside a classroom setting. The book provides an adequate introduction to how you can learn to identify fallacies in arguments. The book is too basic for persons looking for detailed or technical discussions of fallacies. More technical books about fallacies include C.L. Hamblin, Fallacies (Studies in Critical Thinking) (No 1) (Vale Press, 1970); Hans V. Hansen and Robert C. Pinto (eds.), Fallacies: Classical and Contemporary Readings (Pennsylvania State University Press, 1995); and Douglas Walton, A Pragmatic Theory of Fallacy (Studies Rhetoric & Communicati) (University of Alabama Press, 1995).
