4.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction, Just Don't Expect Any Depth., 5 Feb 2009
Firstly, in case you don't already know, this is less a guide to winning every argument and more a guide to identifying fallacies.

This book is a great introduction to the fallacies prevalent in the modern world. There is great breadth to the examination, and each fallacy is explained well. However, note that each fallacy is covered in a couple of pages, so don't expect anything much depth. The humour is cringe-inducing at times, but hardly a reason to ignore this work.

If you have any interest in fallacies, this is a great introduction.

1.0 out of 5 stars Despicable EA Greed, 24 April 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Europeans have been consistently ripped off when it comes to the price of games, but this is one step too far.

How EA can expect us to fork over twice the cash as our American friends is beyond me, especially considering that we patiently sat and twiddled our thumbs for almost 6 months longer.

Don't even entertain the thought of buying this. EA will not make fools of us all.
