    Excellent guide on argumentation for todays world

    Don't go into this book expecting A Treatise on Argumentation, or a Idiots guide to Rhetoric, but something somwhere in the middle and you will be pleased that you took to the time to read this book. The Pop-references fit in nicely with the latin roots that are usually hidden off ot the site. With the help of stories, humor, and common conversations, the text was well-rounded and fun to read. There is just something nice about reading a book that entertains you while it makes you a little smarter.

    A reviewer

    . . . but not with Deborah Kerr 'p.23 of the paperback'. Ooops! That was Donna Reed starring opposite Jimmy Stewart in the Frank Capra classic. But I'm sure others have already pointed this out. No argument---just the facts. Other than that, a good read so far.
