Logic in bite-sized pieces

This collection of fallacies was educational and entertaining -often a rarity in books on the subject. It gave a clear voice performance, a hearty sampling of every day fallacies & true-believer fallacies, and even named some fallacies that are common enough that they deserve names even though they may receive less attention elsewhere. I may try other fallacy collections, but would not be surprised to find this the finest collection of mass distributed, affordable audiotomes. My only complaint is that he didn't go after Islam with even a third, even a fifth, of the contention that he mustered against Christianity for it's adherents common fallacies.

Pretty good!

This is one of those books that I'm tempted to grab a hard cover copy of because I think the way that it's visually laid out might help me process it better. It reads very much like an encyclopedia. It has great points to make and helps you see the world and conversations around you in a different light almost right away. He throws in some wonderful humor too!

Got it for free, it was OK

Worth checking out but format won't appear to all. Gets a bit draining after a while.

Several pronunciation issues, the most annoying and prevalent of which was "sidduations" instead of situations. A few others like "taroT" cards. The t is usually not pronounced.

Lists at end make no sense being read off. He is pretty hard on Christians but seems to be one. I agree with other reviewers that the sales pitches throughout could be dropped.

A heading is required.

Loved it. Only thing wrong with it is that it moves so fast. Quota fulfilled.

Too much Christian bashing

We Christians are like fish in a barrel. Try being a bit braver and sprinkle some Muslim and atheist irrationalities in there a bit.

Does Bo Bennett only know of Christians who are illogical?

The study of logical fallacies is always helpful.
I like Bo Bennett's humor yet I sense a chip on his shoulder. There is still a lot he can come to understand about religion and morality and the spiritual realm but it feels he has no desire to do so. As someone who is just starting my pursuit of logic and philosophy, this was a fun, easy read but the tone of it felt bitter in that Mr. Bennett has angst against many people who believe in God, Messiahs and leprechauns, as he seems to put them all in the same pot.
I myself, have more against Christians who use fallacious reasoning than I have against Christianity itself.
The book was helpful to me. But I'd love to hear Bo Bennett say that many spiritual/religious people are capable of being logical and reasonable. I seemed to wonder if Mr. Bennett thought that was possible.

Very unprofessional

Just made it to chapter 9, and I can't listen to him anymore. He has an incredibly unprofessional attitude in his tone, making it difficult to take him seriously...who would expect the slang "bi-atch" to be said in a book like this? Furthermore, his obvious disgust toward God certainly shines through in his narration, and takes any opportunity to express it to the listener (I've never heard a single Christian in my life say something like "Tony's a Godless S.o.B" - it just goes against the way we speak, and the way we treat people; very disingenuous).

Because of the title, if he presented only the facts of what the fallacies are, and kept his personal beliefs out of it, it'd be worth a listen. But, since we weren't warned that this was a Humanist take on fallacies while venting his angst toward God while narrating (it would be a long title, but at least it'd be honest), there's no way I could recommend this audiobook. :/ The only solace I have is that I got it with a credit point.

Obvious Bias

The author has an obvious bias against Christianity, which grew tiresome by chapter 2. This book is more a rant against one belief system than a presentation of debate concepts.

Important topic not suited for audio format.

This is an important topic but does not work well as an audiobook. For this intersected I would recommend text format.

Thinly veiled neo Marxist book of logic

Starts with an attack on President Trump and a pro-life argument, this tells you everything you need to know about the book. It also doesn't get much better from there, I'm not even against pro-choice but politicising logic doesn't appeal to me, unless you look to support your leftist agenda, save your time on this one
