Duration: 3 hours 46 minutes

Summary:

Logic is synonymous with reason, judgment, sense, wisdom, and sanity. Being logical is the ability to create concise and reasoned arguments-arguments that build from given premises, using evidence, to a genuine conclusion. But mastering logical thinking also requires studying and understanding illogical thinking, both to sharpen one's own skills and to protect against incoherent, or deliberately misleading, reasoning.

Elegant, pithy, and precise, Being Logical breaks logic down to its essentials through clear analysis, accessible examples, and focused insights. D. Q. McInerny covers the sources of illogical thinking, from naïve optimism to narrow-mindedness, before dissecting the various tactics-red herrings, diversions, and simplistic reasoning-the illogical use in place of effective reasoning.

An indispensable guide to using logic to advantage in everyday life, this is a concise, accessible book. Written explicitly for the layperson, McInerny's Being Logical promises to take its place beside Strunk and White's The Elements of Style as a classic of lucid, invaluable advice.
