The Amazing Dr. Ransom's Bestiary of Adorable Fallacies
We love this resource! My kids all flip through it for fun and draw the cute Beasties. A wonderful way to remember fallacies.
This book (along with the related flash cards) are a great way to learn logical fallacies. The illustrations of the beasts, the stories that go along with them, and the practice exercises at the end of each chapter provide several ways for the reader to become familiar with each fallacy and put them into practice.
It's very, very good..wish I knew about it earlier in my life.
Added to our shelf for our families expanding knowledge
The book is great; the illustrations are hilarious and help my son to remember which fallacy is which. My only gripe is that when it arrived I skimmed through it before giving it to him, and after just that one quick readthrough the cover was already coming detached from the pages. Two reads later by my son and pages are falling out and the cover has come off completely. Y'all need to check the expiration date on your binding glue or something 'cause that's just silly.
Hi Alyssa -- That's definitely a binding error; doesn't often happen but that one must have made it through Quality Control! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your order # and address and we'll get you a new copy in the mail as soon as possible!
