This superb book, now in its third edition, will help anyone who wants to argue well and think critically. Using witty and topical examples, this fully-updated new edition includes many new entries and updates the whole text.
Thinking from A to Z may not help you win every argument, but it will definitely give you the power to tell a good one from a bad one.
Written in a clear and unpretentious style, it will be readily accessible to the ordinary intelligent reader. It presupposes no special background knowledge. It should be particularly useful for sixth-formers and undergraduates in the humanities and social sciences, who need to sharpen up their argumentation in essays.
It also provides a useful antidote to various spurious forms of argument common in political debate and in the popular news media.
