What is a fallacy? A fallacy is an error in logic—a place where someone has made a mistake in his thinking.

These are fallacies:

  • "A cloud is 90% water. A watermelon is 90% water. Therefore, since a plane can fly through a cloud, a plane can fly through a watermelon."
  • This new book, The Fallacy Detective, must do a good job teaching logic. It has been on the best-seller list for months."

  2. Self-teaching
  3. Written for ages 13 through adult

I recommend this book for ALL families! This (with their 2nd book The Thinking Toolbox) helps prepare a child for clear, critical and logical thinking in a delightfully engaging way. It is a "must do" for our children to help prepare them to think clearly for college and for life.
