Decent book. It goes through the bare basics of an argument, and the typical tricks that people play when arguing.
The book is very logically and appropriately laid out. I found it a bit challenging because picking apart conversations to their bare components is not something that comes naturally to me. I borrowed from the library however I'm definitely going to buy it because it's one of those books that explains really useful life skills.
