    "Not all rhetoric is argument"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    When I see the word 'mastering' in the title, I think of a deeper dive into fallacies, to learn them almost from a mathematical level. Instead, this is more of a rapid fire name and example with just the briefest of descriptions.


    Has Mastering Logical Fallacies turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but I'll be reading reviews more carefully in the future -- that and the scant time on this audiobook should have been a giveaway that it would not have the depth I was looking for.


    Have you listened to any of Nathan W Wood’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Haven't listened to this narrator before.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mastering Logical Fallacies?

    I would cut about half the political examples in favor of more obvious, generic examples on only drive to politics when necessary.


    Any additional comments?

    The author uses a LOT of political examples in his work. Although he does make a good effort to be fair using examples from both major political parties in the US, it gets a little tedious. Additionally, in the author's quest for political examples, some of the rhetoric he slaps with the label of "fallacy" is actually non-argumentative speaking. If a politician says to the crowd, "what a wonderful crowd", that's not an argument, it's just phatic communication.<br/>While I share the author's frustration at the lack of logical argumentation in the current American political climate, the examination of fallacy should not be presented in the heat of that frustration, rather with a more careful, academic study.

    "Weirdly political"

    I downloaded this audiobook because I wanted to learn more about logic. Although the author does present information on logic he uses all political examples… And in doing so makes this a very politicized book. It's very clear that he doesn't like trump or FOXNews.
    If you want to actually learn about logic I would not suggest listening to this book… Unfortunately it is very short on content and short on practical solutions.
