Description: 
 "You've Got to Be Kidding!" will be an excellent textbook to teach critical thinking skills through humor while making learning about logical fallacies and irrational thinking processes much enjoyable. The book can also be used along with another textbook, with more serious examples, to teach rhetoric and critical thinking at the university level. 

Read this book carefully and enjoy many of its jokes while each one would highlight an important lesson in critical thinking. Perhaps among its many in the "Fallacies of Relevance" category, I enjoyed the "ad baculum" fallacy the most. It is because I see politicians often use a double dose of it in demanding negotiations to be held and, at the same time, demanding acceptance of terms which could only be the result of give-and-take during negotiation - all as a pre-condition to negotiate. They would fortify the demand by another dose of this "ad baculum" fallacy in the form of possible punishments, attacks, sanctions, etc, if the other side did not comply. Read this book so next time you hear the "ad baculum" fallacy (aka: "Threat Disguised as Reason"), you can laugh out loud and tell them "You've Got to Be Kidding!"
