Interesting... A few years ago my Dad worked for a Christian company and brought home a lot of freebies... I would have sworn he brought home a copy of that. I'll have to check around!
Blessings!

Rebecca-

I can tell you why this 2009 version of The Fallacy Detective a better book if that helps.

1. More cartoons.

2. Added lessons on the "slippery slope" and "special pleading" fallacies.

3. Corrected examples are inaccurate or hard to understand.

4. A cool new look.
