The Fallacy Detective: Thirty-Eight Lessons on How to Recognize Bad Reasoning Paperback

by Nathaniel Bluedorn (Author) , Hans Bluedorn (Author)

What is a fallacy? A fallacy is an error in logic – a place where someone has made a mistake in his thinking. For example, “A cloud is 90% water. A watermelon is 90% water. Therefore, since a plane can fly through a cloud, a plane can fly through a watermelon.”  Fallacies are all around us, and are utilized in advertising, the media, and in everyday conversation. This is an easy book for learning to spot common errors in reasoning.
