Truth, Knowledge, Or Just Plain Bull: How To Tell The Difference : A Handbook of Practical Logic and Clear Thinking by Bernard M. Patten

Crimes Against Logic: Exposing the Bogus Arguments of Politicians, Priests, Journalists, and Other Serial Offenders by Jamie Whyte

Dr. Joseph Roberts, Associate Professor of Politics and International Relations

Description

“Both of these books go together nicely for critical thinking and information literacy in a post truth world. Patten clearly shows how information is manipulated to disguise flaws in logic or provide false evidence. Whyte pokes fun at the twisted logic of those who serially abuse logic and reason to mislead and corrupt. Both are quick fun reads that will teach you something useful.”
