    1. Nice, concise easy to read definitions of the types of philosophical argument.I recently took a course on an introduction to philosophy, and this book helped enormously with my essay construction.I keep it by and I'm constantly thumbing through it to reenforce the things I forget.



    2. First off, this author has a cool name: Nigel Warburton. That's already fifteen stars worthy.I hope he owns at least two green sweaters. If not, he should buy them. I'm serious. Buy them.Reading this book was refreshing, especially after browsing through the YouTube comment section. In a world of spray-on abs, NBC sitcoms, presidential candidates grinning on stage in animatronic form, a sincere belief in magical crystals and talking goat-heads that cure the flu, I needed to brush my teeth. And t [...]


    3. Intelligent, concise, yet tough to use at times. Wonderful for reference--if you happen to know the name of the idea or tactic you want to read about. I ended up reading it cover-to-cover, since the dictionary-style alphabetical categories lacked a topic index in the back. Still, worthwhile.


    4. This isn't the sort of book that's really made to sit down and read through, but it's a great little encyclopedia on types of rational thought and argument, and the many ways these can commonly go wrong.


    5. What a book! For I haven't read any books on the logic before, this one has attracted me very much and I can't put it down. فقط همینو بگم فعلا که دارم باهاش عشق می کنم!ا


    6. This concise encyclopedia is an eye-opener on the kinds of fallacies deployed as arguments which, upon first consideration might sound plausible. The language and the examples proffered make the book an accessible and an enjoyable read.


    7. An awesome book! I read it twice but I still feel I need to have it again. Thought-provoking, funny and addictive. The knowledge I got from this book is priceless. My style and technique of argument has really improved since this piece came into my hands. I took several philosophical classes, full of debates and questions. Applying some contents from this book proved how worthy it is.


    8. Felsefe, dil, mantık ilişkisini kabul gören düşünme disiplinlerinden yola çıkarak oldukça yararlı bir kaynak hazırlanmış. Kim isterse, istediği önerme, tanıt veya ilkeden başlayıp kendine göre bir yol çizebiliyor bu kitapta. Araştırma yapan herkesin masasında bulunması araştırmacılara daha az şaşıran bir dil üretimin geleceğine katkı sağlayacağını düşünüyorum.


    9. I've had to read this book through several times for work, and it's forced me to become a more logical thinker and to recognize thinking fallacies in myself and in other people. I would urge you that if you're interested in this type of material, read this book over and over again. You'll probably miss much of the material if you only read it once.



    10. Fantastic reference book! You should be able to find a cheap, used copy and have it on hand for writing humanities essays or analyzing texts.



    11. Good book, although not what I expected, more of an argument dictionaryfun read for future students of law-
