Not particularly absorbing as a book (and indeed as a topic, I guess) - but I feel it could have been made easier to read. My neurons switched off half-way through, and I power-read the rest. Thus, I probably suck at both formulating a case for, and picking apart, an argument - so i'll just nod like the Churchill dog when one says "The Logic of Real Arguments was distinctly average"!
