Currently it is a daunting task for each of us to decide what to believe from a range of adverts to blogs, television to newspapers. This book aims to teach you how to analyze people’s arguments and explains the main ‘fallacies’ that are used to deceive and confuse.
Critical thinking shows people how to analyze arguments, speeches, and newspaper articles to recognise which faults the authors are making in their reasoning.
For this the structure of language is used to demonstrate rules by which you can identify good analytical thinking and helps people to formulate clear arguments themselves.
The title proves to be an invaluable tool for both students wanting to improve their grades and general readers to boost their brainpower.
