"I have happily used this text many times. I have returned to it after experimenting with other texts. The writing is not dumbed-down, cute, or ingratiating. It is clear, intelligent, and comprehensible to the students."- John Justice, Randolf College
"The book does contain an amazing collection of real argumentative passages complete with near perfect companion exercises for students to engage in learning how to evaluate arguments. I think it's the best I have ever seen. Also, the style in which the book is written is lucid and engaging."- Michael Nassif, Kent State University
"A clear and diverse survey of approaches to analyzing arguments, with many helpful examples and exercises."- Joseph F. Keeping, York University
"Nice overall organization of examples, exercises and review.""Excellent discussion of fallacies and kinds of arguments.""A good and thorough discussion of the analysis of arguments with strong attention paid to the questions of logical organization and evaluation.
