Your argument is valid and you know it; yet once again you find yourself leaving a debate feeling defeated and embarrassed.

The ability to recognize logical fallacies when they occur is an essential life skill. Mastering Logical Fallacies is the clearest, boldest, and most systematic guide to dominating the rules and tactics of successful arguments. This book offers methodical breakdowns of the logical fallacies behind exceedingly common, yet detrimental, argumentative mistakes, and explores them through real life examples of logic-gone-wrong. 

Designed for those who are ready to gain the upper hand over their opponents, this master class teaches the necessary skills to identify your opponents' misuse of logic and construct effective arguments that win. With the empowering strategies offered in Mastering Logical Fallacies you'll be able to reveal the slight-of-hand flaws in your challengers' rhetoric, and seize control of the argument with bulletproof logic.

A great reference

This book is a concise and inclusive reference to logical fallacies. I enjoyed hearing the book to learn about these fallacies as I also enjoyed mapping these fallacies to arguments people (including I) unrepentingly and unrelentingly pitch at each other. I feel much reassured having acquired a basic but formal understanding of these fallacies. The book helps in dissecting and understanding fallacies in helping spot these in conversation or print and, hopefully, take a more rational stand leading to a conscious practice of trying to tackle and thus eliminate the ill effects fallacies have on our conclusions and decisions. Great toolset to have, indeed!

Great to know the Latin terms

Most logical fallacies are trivial and you would think you can spot them when some one commits them in the real world. However, this book introduces the latin terms behind each logical fallacy that you should memorize. It may make you sound more professional if you can quickly rattle off the logical fallacy that applies to your opponent's argument :-))
