Thinking from A to Z, Paperback Book

What is `humpty-dumptying'? Do `arguments from analogy' ever stand up? How do I know when someone is using `weasel words'? What's the difference between a `red herring' and a `straw man'?This superb book, now in its third edition, will help anyone who wants to argue well and think critically.

Using witty and topical examples, this fully-updated edition includes many new entries and updates the whole text.

New entries include:Principle of CharityLawyer's AnswerLeast Worst OptionPoisoning the WellSentimentalitySunk Cost FallacyWeasel Words`You would say that wouldn't you'. Thinking from A to Z may not help you win every argument, but it will definitely give you the power to tell a good one from a bad one.
