📙 Informal Logic: A Pragmatic Approach by Douglas Walton — epub download


I found this book to be very logical, well laid out, and interesting. I had no problem reading through this book. In fact it was a breeze reading and I am now interested in reading more of the author's books on logic and argumentation. I would like to add that this is the first book on logic I have read. Additionally I found the information in the book to be very practicable/easy to put into use. I find myself unconsciously using techniques, from this book, for critical evaluation to criticize and evaluate the arguments used by others, and using the techniques for promoting open dialogue at work and in my other day to day interactions. I think this book would be great to read in high school, though I am not implying it is "high school level" material. I highly recommend this book to anyone.
