The Book of Common Fallacies
Falsehoods, Misconceptions, Flawed Facts, and Half-Truths That Are Ruining Your Life
With Julia Edwards
Long before Snopes.com and Wikipedia, The Book of Common Fallacies set out to debunk popular beliefs and set the record straight. By tracking down the facts and citing experts in a multitude of fields, Philip Ward points out the senseless ideas that we have come to accept as fact. Newly updated with today’s common misconceptions and available as a single-volume paperback for the first time, The Book of Common Fallacies exposes the truth behind hundreds of commonly held false beliefs.
