Description

The Art of the Argument shocks the dying art of rational debate back to life, giving you the essential tools you need to fight the escalating sophistry, falsehoods, and vicious personal attacks that have displaced intelligent conversations throughout the world. At a time when we need reasonable and empirical discussions more desperately than ever, The Art of the Argument smashes through the brain-eating fogs of sophistry and mental manipulation, illuminating a path to benevolent power for all who wish to take it.

Civilization is defined by our willingness and ability to use words instead of fists - in the absence of reason, violence rules. The Art of the Argument gives you the intellectual ammunition - in one concentrated, entertaining and powerful package - to engage in truly productive, civilization-saving debates. Armed with this book, you will be empowered to speak truth to power, illuminate ignorance, shatter delusions, and expose the dangerous sophists within your own life, and around the world.

Good information about debate, I would prefer someone else narrate

The information about debating/arguing I found useful. I had heard the term sophist but never truly understood what it meant and the ideas behind it. The only issue I had was with the narration. I would have preferred someone else narrate. Normally, I would take breaks when I want to digest the content I have heard but this book I took breaks because of the narrator’s performance.

A very rational book

If you want to understand why many people no longer argue, but slander.

If you want to improve, read this book

Digressions as a Form of Argument

It seemed like Stefan was going somewhere, but constant digressions and loss of focus, or even to discuss argument, let alone the art of argument, made this the worst purchase so far...perhaps it's the title that is misleading.

Great narration as usual

Dramatic narration and very pertinent talking points for the modern North American debate. Stefan let's his love for theater and drama shine through in his voice. Shivers up my spine were felt more than once.

Stefans voice rings through with clarity

the narrator and writer Stefan Molyneux does wonders to bring clarity and perspective to the political and ideological states of the world in order to educate and guide toward a more rational world

Read the righteous mind by Jonathan Haidt instead. I'm amazed at all of these high ratings.

Too bad

I was hoping this would be a good guide on rhetoric and logic. In that regard, it does have at least a little value, but that value is overshadowed by the long winded, poorly structured and flawed examples inspired by Stefans personal beliefs. It really takes considerable focus to ignore all the problems and focus on what should have been the real points. Too bad the book itself doesn't filter that noise out for us.

Verbose

Redundant explanations made the book twice as long as necessary. Otherwise good content and performance.

Biased

By its title, this book presents itself as a guide to argue effectively. It doesn’t take long however, to discover the true intent of the author, which is to—by no means of persuasion—tell you of the many flaws of liberalism.

I waited patiently for the author to use an example where conservatism has gone astray but there was no such instance. I’m no expert in debate, but aren’t you supposed to be able to argue your opponent’s position?

This is an opinion piece. Many times throughout this book, I felt as though someone were ranting at me, sprinkling in the word “argument” as a means to defend the title. I finished the book, mostly because I was amused at how far the author would take his rant. He did not relent and instead of learning how to argue, I learned how much this man despises liberal principles.

Annoying

I thought this would be a book about the principles of argument. It was actually more a philosophical discussion of the concept of argument. I couldn’t finish because the book was unnecessarily wordy to the point where it was annoying. After 3 hours of what I can best describe as rambling (though the rambling may have some great philosophical perspectives), it is really somewhat pointless. The writing style paints the author as overwhelmingly arrogant as well.

Not at all what was promised.

This book is not about arguments at all, and does not give you any tools for winning arguments like promised. Instead it is a cheap rant about the authors current political opponents. The book feels like an unedited transcript of an episode of Free Domain Radio, with all the logical falacies still left in.

Arrogance abounds as arguments are almost absent

The writer uses strong auditory delivery to mask poorly developed content. About 15 percent of the book is consistent with the title. The rest is a dramatic presentation of self aggrandizement. The author is clearly intelligent (because he tells us repeatedly). It was like listening to a mock version of The Dating Game comprised of three bloviating members of Mensa (sorry/not sorry to let the secret out).

Save your money or buy Bo Bennett’s Logically Fallacious.

Political conservative propaganda.

The book started with some good discussions about arguments but it quickly got too political, the author used the definition of argument too loosely. This book was more about arguing his outdated conservative principles and bashing the "welfare state" if you are looking for a book about how to debate, or argue then stay away.

A Fraud. Nothing More Than Conservative Spew.

Actually, more than just Conservative spew. The author is a pompous blowhard, continuously putting himself above everyone else for what he considers makes him better -- yet he never provides anything more than standard definitions for standard logic and philosophical concepts. The most egregious offenses are his presentations of his clearly biased arguments against unmarried women, minorities, Democrats, and atheists without any supporting data -- immediately after claiming that without data, one is not properly engaging in argument. In other words, the work is a sham. Really wish I hadn't spent any money on this -- I hate the idea that I paid money to promulgate this Conservative garbage.

Incidentally, based on the reviews, I cannot believe the book has a 4.3 star rating. I suggest Audible take another look at the rating and show everyone the statistics that went into it. Or are they trying to promote sales?

False Premises Included

This book was long on social commentary and baseless right wing claims, which were completely unnecessary for the book. Don’t waste your time, this will not teach how to improve your arguments.

like an extra long podcast

I listen to free domain radio every day, so listening to Stefan speak for 5 hours was no difficult feat. this book has some great arguments and ideas in it. it's worth listening to a few times over.
