An Illustrated Book Of Bad Arguments from the Author: Ali Almossawi. “A flawless compendium of flaws.” —Alice Roberts, PhD, anatomist, writer, and presenter of The Incredible Human Journey The antidote to fuzzy thinking, with furry animals! Have you read (or stumbled into) one too many irrational online debates? Ali Almossawi certainly had, so he wrote An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments! This handy guide is here to bring the internet age a much-needed dose of old-school logic (really old-school, a la Aristotle). Here are cogent explanations of the straw man fallacy, the slippery slope argument, the ad hominem attack, and other common attempts at reasoning that actually fall short—plus a beautifully drawn menagerie of animals who (adorably) commit every logical faux pas. Rabbit thinks a strange light in the sky must be a UFO because no one can prove otherwise (the appeal to ignorance). And Lion doesn’t believe that gas emissions harm the planet because, if that were true, he wouldn’t like the result (the argument from consequences). Once you learn to recognize these abuses of reason, they start to crop up everywhere from congressional debate to YouTube comments—which makes this geek-chic book a must for anyone in the habit of holding opinions.

Dmu And Emu Recognition Guide from the Author: Colin J. Marsden. Although, in 1948 British Railways inherited a number of multiple-units, the vast majority of which were EMUs designed for operation on the electrified networks around London, Manchester, Liverpool and Newcastle, over the next decade there was a revolution in the provision of motive power with the first-generation DMUs coming into service in large numbers and with further extensions to the Southern's electrified network requiring additional stock. This volume provides complete coverage of all types of DMU and EMU fleets.

Abc Railway Depots from the Author: Paul Smith. An essential part of the railway industry is the provision of maintenance—or Traincare as it is now called—depots to service and house locomotives and rolling stock. Many of the depots used were either based on the site of former steam sheds or represented new facilities built to cater to the arrival of diesel and electric traction, but in an age when rolling stock is leased and the manufacturers have a build-and-maintain contract, new depots have been built away from traditional locations. This new abc guide provides a handy guide to the depots that are currently in use for the contemporary railway network. Each entry has a location map and information about the owners, rolling stock handled, address, and so on. As with the earlier volumes, the book is not an invitation to visit the sites, but will include address details for enthusiasts to make application for permits to visit.
