The Fallacy Detective (revised)

The Fallacy Detective (revised)

by Nathaniel & Hans Bluedorn

What is a fallacy? A fallacy is an error in logic, a place where someone has made a mistake in his thinking. These are fallacies: 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." The original Fallacy Detective, must do a good job teaching logic. It has been on the bestseller list for months. Now revised and updated.

"We wrote this book to meet the needs of Christian parents who want a do-able text for introducing logic and critical thinking to their children. This book is for fallacy detectives. We've designed this book to be a handy-dandy text for learning to spot the errors in thinking that you meet everyday on the street, in the newspaper, or on television, or errors you make yourself."

This is an easy book for learning to spot common errors in reasoning.
