Drawing4-FallacyDetective

the_fallacy_detective_2009_coverTrivium Pursuit is giving away 4 copies of The Fallacy Detective by Nathaniel Bluedorn and Hans Bluedorn

What is a fallacy? A fallacy is an error in logic – a place where someone has made a mistake in his thinking.

These are fallacies:

“A cloud is 90% water. A watermelon is 90% water. Therefore, since a plane can fly through a cloud, a plane can fly through a watermelon.”

“This new book, The Fallacy Detective, must do a good job teaching logic. It has been on the bestseller list for months.”

We wrote this book to meet the needs of Christian parents who want a do-able text for introducing logic and critical thinking to their children.

* Fun to use – not dry like a math textbook.

* Self-teaching – not intimidating, starts students with skills they can use right away.

* Each lesson has exercises for students, with an answer key at the back.

* Covers logical fallacies and propaganda techniques. We divided the most common fallacies and propaganda techniques into thirty-eight lessons. We explain how you can spot fallacies, and we give exercises to stretch your abilities for detecting fallacies.

* Geared for ages twelve and older – we suggest using The Fallacy Detective before advancing onto more difficult logic programs.

* Includes The Fallacy Detective Game, giving you and your friends an entertaining way to spot and make up your own examples of fallacies.

* Christian view of logic. Many critical thinking texts introduce political correctness. This book does not.

* Can be used before or after The Thinking Toolbox

* Cartoons to illustrate the logical fallacies discussed, including Peanuts, Dilbert, Calvin and Hobbes, and several original cartoons

This book is for fallacy detectives. We’ve designed this book to be a handy-dandy text for learning to spot the errors in thinking that you meet everyday on the street, in the newspaper, or on television – or errors you make yourself.

Oh, my son would love this! He loves puzzles and I am always trying to invest in critical/logical thinking resources.

Laura Pittman June 6th, 2011 at 8:22 pm

Oooooh! I’ve been eyeing this and it’s on my list of things to buy for our next year’s plan/curriculum! We’re almost through all our mindbenders and other sorts of critical thinking workbooks and would love this!

Melissa Wilhoite June 6th, 2011 at 8:22 pm

This has been on my list! Pick me!! :)

Kristen June 6th, 2011 at 8:22 pm

I think my son would love this … he’s great with puzzles and loves mathematical thinking, but the logic doesn’t always translate over to his reading skills. This would be great!

Brenda Jeter June 6th, 2011 at 8:22 pm

I love it! Logical thinking with Biblical principles. What great things to teach our children!

Dawn Barber June 6th, 2011 at 8:22 pm

My sister is using this book with her kids and loves it.

Kimbrah June 6th, 2011 at 8:22 pm

With 5 little boys, anything that can help me teach them good reasoning is much appreciated! :)

Melissa Dorrell June 6th, 2011 at 8:22 pm

I would love to win this! I’ve looked at it so many times and plan to eventually use it.

Cherie Harris June 6th, 2011 at 8:22 pm

Gigi June 6th, 2011 at 8:22 pm

I used this for my older kids, then gave it away, and now need it again for my younger kids!

Beth June 6th, 2011 at 8:22 pm

We are trying to do more with critical thinking. This would be helpful.

Christina June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

My boys love this — and so do I — it develops their critical thinking skills so well! :)

Karen G June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

A little advanced for my boys at this time. I am planning on teaching logic as it is important. I am glad to have been introduced to the title this year in the game. Hopefully I won’t forget between now and when they are old enough.

Tracy ~ A Natural Process June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

My daughter would love this! She is always asking me things like this and trying to figure things out.

Alisa Russell June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

With my oldest son entering high school, this would be a very handy resource to have. And my younger one would enjoy it too.

Shani June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

I’ve been wanting to buy this too. Great giveaway!

Laura June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

this is a great way to help teach logic…

Jennifer Willard June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Awesome!!!!

Theresa Voshel June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

LOVE this! What a great way to teach beginning logic in a fun way!

Carol Cross June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Oh man, we need this in our house. I was actually a philosophy major, so I am always telling my son that his logic is faulty, or that he is using an ad hominem argument, ect. But, of course, what do I know, since I am just his mom? So I need a book to PROVE what I’ve been telling him.

Jillian June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

AWESOME! This sounds great! We’d love this, as my dad is a detective and my kids love investigating!!!

Patty Thompson June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

I think this would be a great item for my daughter–she has very little common sense–totally relies on book smarts and doesn’t put two and two together sometimes!

taria June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Oh,, I have heard soo many great things about this. I was looking at getting this for my oldest daughter. I would love to win it!

Tara B June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

We’ve been wanting this one for a while!

becky farris June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Emily Delaney June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Oh! This is on my wish list for the fall.

Kelli June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Looking to add more logic into our day, this looks perfect!

faith tucker June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

my boys would adore this!!

Ashley June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

We’re continuing logic studies this year and wowsa, this was what I was looking at!

My kids NEED this book! My oldest one especially lol!

Christina June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

PS Would love to win this version, please! Thanks! :)

Sarah June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Hopefully my logic challenged argued could benefit from this!!

Bethany Setness June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

My son is such a deep thinker and this would really help him focus his thoughts! He needs encouragement to see that he has amazing talents and this would bring that out in him!

Heather June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

I am not familiar with this – looks like something that would challenge my son.

Holly Cameron June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

this would be a wonderful resource for my kids who are thinking about careers in law enforcement….

Kimberly Mauldin June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

This sounds like a very interesting way to get the children to think through the details to come up with an answer – are there more of these available? What a terrific concept to use in homeschool. Thanks for the offer.

Katrina June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

We’ve not done anything so far with actually trying to “teach” logic – I’ve had this book on my wishlist for a while.

Melissa June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Good reasoning…logic…yup, definitely good additions!

Rebecca June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

This looks like something my boys would love.

Jennifer June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Boy we sure could use some logic in this house!

stephanie June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

this would be such a blast!

Jennifer ALlen June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

I love to learn how to teach in a fun way, proper critical thinking skills.

Tara SD June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Very fun way to present logic!

Jennifer Dages June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Don’t have this one either. And it is getting time to do some logic at this house so if we win we will add that in this next school year.

Melanie June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

We homeschool using a classical model. Logic is a big part of it. i would love the Fallacy Detective since I don’t own it, but have heard great reviews!

Becky K. June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

This is on my wish list!

April P June 6th, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Amanda Smith June 6th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

My daughter could benefit from this soooo much! It’s so appealing visually, too!

jkittell June 6th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

my kids love mystery and I love a good lesson!

Melissa June 6th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

Looks like an awesome resource for my children.

Katie Slocum June 6th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

This looks like fun!

Jeniver June 6th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

Would love to have this. One of my children especially needs to work on seeing truth and fallacy separately. Thanks for the chance.

Kimberly Hill June 6th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

Oh my…I’ve been trying to explain what logic is to my daughter!!! Would love a helpful tool!!

Cheryl June 6th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

My son adores logic problems. This would be fabulous to add to what we do.

My son would love this. He is always trying to figure out puzzles. Thus far I have kept him and his sister together but I can see how he would really enjoy these!

Kathleen Forbes June 6th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

We could definately use some help in our house teaching logic!

Kathy N June 6th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

We’ve heard rave reviews about this book, but I’ve yet to get a chance to actually see it in person. Our large homeschool support group has a lending library but is sadly lacking this awesome and widely recommended title.

Tim June 6th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

This would be great for my youngest

Amy June 6th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

Exactly where my 12 year old (oops I mean 13 as of 3 days ago) is headed for next year – beginning logic.

Beth Rosamond June 6th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

My friend Shari was just recommending this book for my 14 year old girl. She said it contains great reasoning activities.

Terry June 6th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

Great Party! We’re looking for new and exciting ways to incorporate life long learning into our every day education. If it’s something that will snag the mind and stay for a lifetime, we want it!

I’ve had this on my Amazon list for a few months now. I think this would really benefit my kids.

Jamie June 6th, 2011 at 8:24 pm

I have wanted this book for some time now. It seems like it would so clearly explain the necessary information.

tonya June 6th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

This would be wonderful! Would love to win this!

Tammy June 6th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

Our son, age 6, loves to play detective. This would help him in following clues and getting the answer.

JenniLyn June 6th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

This looks to be perfect to help introduce logic to my son.

Lisa @ Me and My House June 6th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

Mrs. Mandy June 6th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

Looks great and would really work well in our studies this fall.

Michelle Petrucci June 6th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

This looks like a fun way to learn. I think my 9 yo daughter would really like it.

Heather1173 June 6th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

I have had heard great things about this book.

Roxanne June 6th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

I would love a copy to use with my 4 kids, 3 who can use it right now and one coming up. I don’t incorporate enough logic in their training and this would fit the bill! Thank you and happy birthday KQ!

Lysa June 6th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

Would love to win this. I have felt burdened to come along side my kids and teach them how to think critically. What an important concept to teach our kids how to think and think from a Godly perspective.
Thanks.

nicole bialkowski June 6th, 2011 at 8:25 pm

I have never heard of this book. I would love to add it to my library for my three boys and any other future children.

Kimberly June 6th, 2011 at 8:26 pm

My 12 year old son would love this! When asked what his favourite subject is, he always says “Logic” :)

Marcie Taylor June 6th, 2011 at 8:26 pm

love this! i didn’t even know you had this resource…and we needed to start critical thinking this year anyway!

Regina Sanders June 6th, 2011 at 8:26 pm

This would be a wonderful resource for our family!

April Smith June 6th, 2011 at 8:26 pm

My nearly 13 yos would love this. He is always asking things like that. One time he asked what I would aliens for dinner should they land in the front yard.

Diane Williams June 6th, 2011 at 8:26 pm

I’ve been looking at this – thinking about getting it – winning it would be fun!

Tammy June 6th, 2011 at 8:26 pm

Oh wow. I haven’t seen this one before. We NEED this book!

Alice June 6th, 2011 at 8:26 pm

My son is finally old enough for this. We have talked about fallacies, but would love to go further with this book.

Beth in SoMD June 6th, 2011 at 8:27 pm

What a neat book! I will definitely check it out.

Jan June 6th, 2011 at 8:27 pm

We have been looking at this for about 3 years and would love a chance to jump in and try it with our 5 kids who represent a variety of learning styles.

Louise June 6th, 2011 at 8:27 pm

This would be a great resource. Thanks for the opportunity to enter!

Laurie Orr June 6th, 2011 at 8:27 pm

this looks like a great book for my 12 year old…and maybe me too!

CindyL June 6th, 2011 at 8:27 pm

I borrowed this from a friend to use with my son, but it’s time for my daughter to go through it as well. She loves to argue, so I need to teach her how to do it correctly!

Alison June 6th, 2011 at 8:27 pm

Awesome! My boys are experts in fallacies!

Laurie June 6th, 2011 at 8:28 pm

This looks like a great tool to teach important life skills. It looks like it would have great content! Perfect.

Michele June 6th, 2011 at 8:28 pm

This looks so helpful! My daughter would really enjoy this book!

Kay Pelham June 6th, 2011 at 8:28 pm

Leanne June 6th, 2011 at 8:28 pm

Sounds totally fun!

Cheryl Ellicott June 6th, 2011 at 8:28 pm

Sounds like a great book and our house is full of little readers!

Michele June 6th, 2011 at 8:28 pm

Fantastic! My kids all have different learning styles and have different ways to solve problems. Working these out together could REALLY help them see that no matter what the problem, they can all figure out logical ways to come to the correct conclusion.

Stephanie Blessing June 6th, 2011 at 8:28 pm

I want this book for myself! Oh, and to track my kids logic, too!

Debbie June 6th, 2011 at 8:28 pm

This sounds like something we could really use!

tracie moore June 6th, 2011 at 8:28 pm

We adore critical thinking books and puzzles!

Linda June 6th, 2011 at 8:29 pm

I would love to win this. I am already planning on including some logic training for my boys (9 and 11) next year. This would be the perfect introduction! :)

Andrea June 6th, 2011 at 8:29 pm

Tricia June 6th, 2011 at 8:32 pm

Renee June 6th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

We are including “logic” in our studies starting in September. Talk about good timing! This book is the one that caught my eyes in the store.

Vicki Barnes June 6th, 2011 at 8:33 pm

My 13yo dd struggles with this and as a ‘logica’l Mom it would help us greatly!!!!

Stacy June 6th, 2011 at 8:34 pm

I have heard wonderful things about this book. It would be great to have in our home.

Sandra Tobey June 6th, 2011 at 8:34 pm

These are such great products, especialy for homeschooling families. My son has used them for all 5 of his kids.

Janet June 6th, 2011 at 8:35 pm

LOVE this book- use it repeatedly and have recommended it often: would love to get another copy for my kids- (all 7 love it- and now some of them are married and want their OWN copy)

Wendy June 6th, 2011 at 8:35 pm

Critical thinking is so important, and I’ve heard this book teaches it in a fun and engaging way. Would love to win a copy! :)

Amy June 6th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

My son (the first of five) is starting logic studies this year. I’ve had my eye on this book, just waiting for him to come of age and study it. Thanks for the chance of winning it!

Dixie Stone June 6th, 2011 at 8:40 pm

Logic can be so confusing. I believe this resource would help clear the mud from the water.

Carey June 6th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

This is wonderful! Always looking for resources to teach logic effectively.

Beth June 6th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

I have been slobbering over this book for two years now, trying to justify buying it in spite of our frugal budget for homeschooling. Thanks for the chance to win it!

Laura O in AK June 6th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

I’ve heard this one is great! Would love to check it out for myself.

Laura June 6th, 2011 at 8:41 pm

I think logic is such an important area to train my child in. With the faulty, myopic logic of our society, there is going to be a great need to see fallacy and deception! I look forward to helping my four children develop this skill!!!

Lisa Funston June 6th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

My daughter loves these types of puzzles!!

Tracie June 6th, 2011 at 8:42 pm

Would love to win this!

Lisa June 6th, 2011 at 8:47 pm

I was just talking to a girlfriend about this book! Would love to have it to go through with my three boys!

Gena Beard June 6th, 2011 at 8:54 pm

I’ve wanted this for a while also. I’ve always heard really positive comments about it.

What a great resource!

Mom24 June 6th, 2011 at 9:56 pm

This has always interested me.

Tina June 6th, 2011 at 9:57 pm

Looked through some critical thinking skills books recently at a curricula fair but they were pretty pricey. Would love to win a copy of this though.
