Deconstructing the Spin
While quite amusing, this book contains some serious information and pits our politicians (circa mid-2000's) and their bullfunky against the rhetorical fallacies outlined by Aristotle. Jokes are sprinkled throughout the book as well because comedy also untilizes the fallacies often. You won't find any criticism of the Obama administration whatsoever because the book predates it. Dubya fans take note, this was written during the depths of the very contentiously debated and still controversial Iraq War and the authors do not shy away from it. Also, some might perceive a liberal bias -which didn't bother me, but some may appreciate a heads up. I loved this book and feel that many who enjoy philosophy, politics, and a good joke would too.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
