What People Are Saying

"I sat down last night with a logic textbook [Adorable Fallacies] prepared by Canon Press—never had I found a subject more artfully and naturally approached.... It's a bit forbidding for me to be before an audience that understands rhetorical tropes, logical fallacies, and so on, because I depend on them to make my points...." -Walter Kirn, author of Up in the Air

"While I review the book as one that should be used by teens, I suspect that many adults will enjoy the book as much or more than teens. Those who might have been introduced to logical fallacies through some other course are unlikely to have encountered all of those covered here, and they certainly will not have learned about the bestiary that accompanies them. Even if Dr. Ransom is reviewing some previously-learned concepts, his unique storytelling talents should prove greatly entertaining." -Cathy Duffy, Homeschool Materials Reviewer

"With its whimsical drawings and far-fetched narrative, I felt as if I were flipping through a copy of J.K. Rowling's Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them rather than a catalog of logical fallacies. If you are looking for a good logic curriculum for your child, I would recommend this one, and while you are at it, this is a great refresher for us parents and teachers out there! We've giggled our way through our older group evening read-aloud time with The Bestiary, laughing at the over-the-top examples, but finding more than adequate fodder in society and history to keep a passionate discussion going for well over an hour." -Homeschooling Moms
