What is 'humpty-dumptying'? Do 'arguments from analogy' ever stand up? How do I know when someone is using 'weasel words'? What's the difference between a 'red herring' and a 'straw man'?

This superb book, now in its third edition, will help anyone who wants to argue well and think critically. Using witty and topical examples, this fully-updated edition includes many new entries and updates the whole text. New entries include:

  • Principle of Charity
  • Lawyer's Answer
  • Least Worst Option
  • Poisoning the Well
  • Sentimentality
  • Sunk Cost Fallacy
  • Weasel Words
  • 'You would say that wouldn't you'.
  • Thinking from A to Z may not help you win every argument, but it will definitely give you the power to tell a good one from a bad one.
