Of course, you can also apply the same to Creationists so as not to commit the same type of logical fallacies in your arguments.
If you already have the author's pocket guide to logic, then be aware that this larger book is essentially a more fleshed out version of the smaller one. I read the smaller book first, and this one didn't really add a whole lot that was new.
There are also 40 some pages of examples and explanations that are presented in numbered-paragraph format. It's not the sort of material one just sits down and reads through. I skipped by it. Some might find it helpful though.
There's also a very nice appendix at the end giving all the formal names of the various fallacies. The list includes the Latin names, and I like having that list as a reference.
This type of logic has been removed from the education system and we all are poorer for the loss of critical reasoning skills in the general populace. You may or may not like Lisle's conclusions but the method is very hard to reject.
