I'm interested in learning and understanding logical fallacies for better skills in debate and discussions and in hopes to improve critical thinking as well. Can you guys please recommend me some books (or audiobooks but not ebooks/pdfs/epubs etc.) on this? It'd be helpful if it has examples as well. :)
A book with a detailed chapter [see Chapter 3] dedicated to fallacies is :
- Patrick Hurley, A Concise Introduction to Logic.
Nonsense: A Handbook of Logical Fallacies - Robert Gula - this book is a good compilation of fallacies in simple but technically rigorous terms.
A rulebook for arguments by Anthony Weston has a chapter on fallacies and subchapter with a list of fallacies; in this book, the author indicates another book with a bigger list of fallacies: Logic and Contemporary Rhetoric by Howard Kahane.
Another I know is The art of being right: 38 ways to win an argument by Arthur Schopenhauer, but I'm not sure if it's exactly what you're looking for.
