Give Away: The Fallacy Detective








What is a fallacy? A fallacy is a mistake made by using illogical reasoning. Example:

A cloud is 90% water and a watermelon is 90% water therefore because a plane can fly through a cloud a plane can also fly through a watermelon.


The Fallacy Detective: Thirty-Eight Lessons on How to Recognize Bad Reasoning by Nathaniel and Hans Bluedorn, helps parents and teachers teach logic using fun examples and cartoons. Teaching logic helps students with math and reasoning skills. This book makes it fun!
