Product description

Review

'It is neither a dry nor weighty tome, but is jam-packed with raw rational sense. It will give you techniques for identifying fallacies and false arguments. It will help protect you from the devious subterfuges of politicians and preachers, journalists and jingoists. It is sweet manna from a rational heaven. Thouless describes 38 dishonest tricks that are commonly used in arguments (there may be more). ' (answersingenes.blogspot.com)

"Straight and Crooked Thinking remains one of the most succinct and practically-applicable books ever written. One blogger named it as his favorite book of all time, describing it as "a concise work of supreme genius." (http://neglectedbooks.com)

"...put it back on the mass market, where it belongs! (...) get it on every bookshelf on the planet." (http://answersingenes.blogspot.com/2007/11/straight-crooked-thinking.html)

Book Description
