Logically Fallacious: The Ultimate Collection of Over 300 Logical Fallacies (Academic Edition) - Bo Bennett

This isn't a reference book, this is heavy artillery. 

 

If you want to clean up your faulty thinking, this is the book for you. You'll catch yourself in everyday fallacies, annoyingly enough, but you'll have clear examples of why the thinking doesn't work and how to correct it.

 

Set up like a dictionary with an easy to use table of contents, each entry is clearly marked, exampled and explained. There are also cross-referenced items for the more detail-oriented. 

 

Sound dry? Don't be so hasty: what you put into your brain comes out of your mouth.

 

Thought, word, deed - our thoughts shape our lives. They influence our conversations, communications, decisions and actions. I can't think of anything more important than that, can you? Used creatively, this book can literally teach you how to (re)think and maybe it's time to invest in something that works if you're sincerely looking to improve the quality of your life.  

 

Logically Fallacious does the trick. cross my little debate-lovin' heart.
