Less "why do we always have to watch what you want to on TV?", more "your argument is flawed - we don't even have a TV".

This book gives you all the ammo you need to spot the failures in logic, linguistic manoeuvres and other tricks employed by people you're probably already disagreeing with on the Internet, but also rather more frighteningly the politicians who are running things. This book is a short, sharp course in "Know your BS 101" (complete with pithy illustrations).

Very interesting, clever book that explains the characteristic logical flaws in certain types of arguments.

I enjoyed reading this book, and I'll have to re-read it before I turn it back in because logic can be a twisty subject. My favorite illustration is the riff on "Alice in Wonderland" in which the little crane cannot have jam today, only every other day, and today is NOT every other day.
