On reflection - it's priceless,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rulebook for Arguments (Paperback)
I've had this book several months. Initially I skipped though it it's very concise, a quick read.
Now some 10 books later, I appreciate it hugely.
The last chapter concerns logical fallacies. It's this chapter that I constantly refer to. Often you can see the error, but you just need a name of it. This book short-cuts to the error.
1. If you're not studying for an exam, then the best book found so far is "Ask the right questions" 9th edition. If you can only afford 1 book, buy this one.
2. If you're studying for A Level then the OCR series on Critical Thinking Books 1 & 2 especially are excellent textbooks with exam hints of what will be particularly tested at A Level.
3. This book is superb for revisiting and finding the Latin names of all these logical fallacies. It's probably one that you'd use again and again, and appreciate more as time goes on.
It's small, A5 size, so tends to float around with me as it's so light and easy to carry.
So on reflection, after months of using this book, it's superb and a solid investment in Critical Thinking.

Thanks for these suggestions. Do you have an ISBN or author name for "Ask The Right Questions" as there are quite a few choices on Amazon?
