How to Win Every Argument

A book about fallacies. A fallacy is faulty reasoning, an error in logic.

When something doesn’t sound right, consider the assumptions internet in the argument.

For example, you’ll see the following often in commercials for a household cleaner: “Kills 99% of all household germs!” This fallacy is called False Precision because exact numbers are used for inexact notions. In this case, what is a ‘household germ’? What if the rest happened to by malaria? The advertisers are using quantity where quality is a highly important factor.

I especially like this book because it has a little malintent by identifying situations and ways you can use these fallacies against others.
