The litbadargumentserature on logic and logical fallacies is wide and exhaustive. This work’s novelty is in its use of illustrations to describe a small set of common errors in reasoning that plague a lot of our present discourse.

In An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments, Ali Almossawi has selected a small set of common errors in reasoning and visualized them using memorable illustrations that are supplemented with lots of examples. The illustrations are partly inspired by allegories such as Orwell’s Animal Farm and partly by the humorous nonsense of works such as Lewis Carroll’s stories and poems.The hope is that the reader will learn from these pages some of the most common pitfalls in arguments and be able to identify and avoid them in practice. (168 ALM)
