This book is very good for middle school to high school. I am planning to use it with high school juniors and seniors and college freshmen. Therefore, I am skipping the first three chapters. Younger kids need the whole thing. Everybody needs the rest. Well done!

It is important in life to be equipped and to be able to detect bad reasoning As homeschoolers it is also a priority to make sure that our own kids are able to think by themselves in a world where sometimes people assume and deduct things from what they see or knowI was first introduced to The Fallacy Detective while my kids were doing gymnastics last spring I was talking to a woman whose teenagers had done the book and she lent it to me so I could check it out I was totally in love with the book and put it on my want-it list for the future as my kids were not in the age of going through something like this In the meantime I became a fan of Trivium Pursuit on Facebook I personally love the tidbits I receive on email as well So when I became aware that a new edition of The Fallacy Detective was available for review I jumped on the opportunity This book will help you to identify where someone is making a mistake in his thinking I enjoyed reading this book and doing the exercises at the end of each chapter It makes you realize how often you donÔŅĹt take the time to stop and think before either saying things or just listening to other people Not everything that comes out of the mouth of someone should be taken for granted This jewel of a book will bring you 38 lessons on how to recognize bad reasoning And like I mentioned before each chapter has its own set of exercises As you advance in the book the exercises will cover all the previous chapters The book also includes The Fallacy Detective Game as well as the answer key of each chapter Once you have gone through the book with your teenager it will be easy to practice Just listen to people who have strong opinions or politicians for example The important thing is that you will be able to find the fallacies you are exposed to and point them to othersI even think that the other products from Trivium Pursuit will find their way into our house someday In the meantime I look forward to training my oldest boy to be able to spot errors of thinking I still have a few more years to prepare myself to go through this with him But it will be worth it Maybe I could go through it with my husband while I wait We would be prepared for the next election if we do so *grin*

Love this book! Reading it through with my 8th grader and we find ourselves searching for fallacies everywhere. It says that the curriculum should count as a high school logic class. I would add some additional projects to consider it at that level.

My 9th grade daughter and I are enjoying reading this book separately and discussing it. Sometimes we quiz each other as at the end of each short chapter, you get to be a detective and find the fallacies.

Many years ago I saw the Bluedorns at a homeschool conference in Illinois and was very interested in the logic and critical thinking - now I can finally use it with my children. Looking forward to it.
KENDRA S on Jul 17, 2016
I purchased this curriculum for my 7th grader because I know it is good. It is simple, fun, gets to the point, and is easily remembered. I used this program for my now-married 24 yr old daughter....and nobody can pull the wool over that young woman's eyes. I'm quite sure this curriculum helped her to use good judgement and express herself without being arrogant or angry.

confused what edition is this?
A shopper on Jul 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is the Workbook Edition and has a 2015 copyright. It has the same content as the previous edition but spaces/lines have been added so the student can write in the book.
Is this the edition with yellow on top and green on bottom? I ordered this on Amazon and the picture looked like this, but they mailed the workbook edition with scripture removed. This is the most only place that I found the old one.
Stacey L on Jul 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It seems that we may have just switched to the Workbook Edition - or perhaps our graphics have just caught up. I notice the graphic has changed and the book I brought in from the warehouse has green on top and yellow on bottom and is marked as "Workbook Edition." It has a 2015 copyright.
