The Amazing Dr. Ransom's Bestiary of Adorable Fallacies 

The Field Guide for Clear Thinkers

Stymied and stumped by arguments that wrap around you like webs of mystification?

Dr. Ransom's Bestiary is perfect for supplementing any logic curriculum, from junior high to college, or for adults who want to learn more about logic! This book is filled with illustrations, descriptions, exercises, and analysis to help you identify and avoid fallacies you might encounter in everyday life.

Fifty informal fallacies belong to families—fallacies of distraction, ambiguity, form, and "millennial fallacies"—and each one has names, nicknames, and a sketch of its adorable, harmless mode and its true feral face. Get the practice you need to identify the little stinkers wherever they might appear using flashcards for all 50 fallacies.

Each fallacy is followed by discussion questions and exercises; a line-listed answer key and both one and two-semester schedules are included in the back of the book.
