I just read a book on logic
So you’d better watch your back!
Now I’m armed with thinking critical

I can pulverize your straw man;
I can see through your smokescreen;
And to innuendo I’ll apply
Deductive reasoning.

And if you should try to toss
A sly red herring in my way,
I’ll crank out a syllogism
That’ll surely make my day.

So don’t try to argue with me

Thankfully, the book is less daunting than I had first imagined. The writing style is accessible, and even conversational at times. The authors include real-life scenarios to illustrate their points. This helps the reader to grasp this difficult subject rather

This was one of the most useful books I read as an undergrad. Especially the chapters on how to spot others' reasoning fallacies in arguments, spoken or print. Those skills along with other critical thinking skills should be taught in grade school, yet it seems many are taught to only consume information and not think critically.
