Publisher's Summary

The Art of the Argument shocks the dying art of rational debate back to life, giving you the essential tools you need to fight the escalating sophistry, falsehoods, and vicious personal attacks that have displaced intelligent conversations throughout the world. At a time when we need reasonable and empirical discussions more desperately than ever, The Art of the Argument smashes through the brain-eating fogs of sophistry and mental manipulation, illuminating a path to benevolent power for all who wish to take it.

Civilization is defined by our willingness and ability to use words instead of fists - in the absence of reason, violence rules. The Art of the Argument gives you the intellectual ammunition - in one concentrated, entertaining and powerful package - to engage in truly productive, civilization-saving debates. Armed with this book, you will be empowered to speak truth to power, illuminate ignorance, shatter delusions, and expose the dangerous sophists within your own life, and around the world.

    "Fantastic. Important message for mankind. "

    The question is: do you want mankind to progress or not. This book will can provide relief of human suffering. The sharks are still in the water, but this book will help you spot them and warn others not to get eaten by them.

    "All parents should have their children read this book."

    Many people will tell others what to think, but it is those who teach how to think that empower humanity. A return to classic logic and reason, the Socratic dialectic, is the ultimate cure for all that ails society.

    "Hopefully one of many"

    Entertaining in ways only Stefan can be this book is excellent for outlining the common means of social manipulation. I can only hope he makes more literature that delves deeper

    "Must read for a civilized society"

    It is the lack of using sound reasoning and critical thinking skills that is causing our loss of liberty, compassion, and kindness in our society. This book could help restore our situation back toward the good.

    "2017's book of the year"

    This is the book that needed to be written. A clear and concise guide on how to have productive and clear discussions. It lays out philosophical discourse succinctly and was an absolute joy to listen to. Stefan is a brilliant orator and I have already listened to this book twice. Highly recommended.

    "Loved it!"

    Stefan always provokes introspection for me. This particular book will get one to realize wether or not they're a "sophist," or if you want to use the colloquial term, a bullshitter.

    One may think it's easy to tell the difference, but in a world of subjective reasoning and a lack of principles, it's hard to even find someone to argue with who humbles you and both sharpens your senses and allows you to realize your faults.

    With The Art of the Argument, you can get that mental sharpening that both you, and civilization, desperately needs.
