    This updated version includes thirty-eight lessons (two new ones) on how to recognize bad reasoning. Learn to spot errors in others' logic, and your own. The focus is on practical logic, such as fallacies you might encounter in a newspaper. Learn to identify red herrings, circular reasoning, statistical fallacies, and propaganda. Each lesson presents several examples of poor reasoning often illustrated by cartoons and then provides a lengthy exercise set in which you identify the fallacies. This book features a Christian view of logic and was written by homeschoolers for homeschoolers. ~ Anh
