Instead, this book surprised me with 100 or so different premises for arguments, some of which are good, others of which are somewhat lacking in logic. Learn to use the former and spot and disprove the latter, and you will be victorious.

If you would like some more facts with which to win arguments, Question Everything: 132 science questions - and their unexpected answers by New Scientist is an easy read that will fill in some gaps you might not even know you have.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Win Every Argument shows how anyone can communicate with confidence, rise above the tit for tats on social media, and triumph in a successful and productive debate in the real world. MSNBC's Mehdi Hasan isn't one to avoid arguments. He relishes them as the lifeblood of democracy and the only surefire way to establish the truth. Arguments help us solve problems, uncover new ideas we might not have considered, and nudge our disagreements toward mutual understanding. A good argument, made in good faith, has intrinsic value--and can also simply be fun. Arguments are everywhere--and especially given the fierce debates we're all embroiled in today, everyone wants to win. In this riveting guide to the art of argument and rhetoric, Hasan shows you how. As a journalist, anchor, and interviewer who has clashed with politicians, generals, spy chiefs, and celebrities from across the world, Hasan reveals his tricks of the trade for the first time. Whether you are making a presentation at work or debating current political issues with a friend, Mehdi Hasan will teach you how to sharpen your speaking skills to make the winning case.

"Impeccably timed, speaking to a moment when many people find themselves drawn into arguments but also fearful of saying something that will hurt someone or (and) get the person saying it into trouble...An entertaining primer on rhetorical techniques."--Jennifer Szalai, The New York Times "I refused to write this blurb for Mehdi Hasan. He won that argument! Now I am doing it. That's how good he is at arguing! I better start reading, quick."--Judd Apatow, Emmy Award-winning writer and director "Mehdi Hasan's book is a masterpiece of rhetorical argument and effective persuasion! From Demosthenes to Churchill, Cicero to Martin Luther King, Hasan lays bare the essential elements of how to delight, instruct, and move an audience. His erudition is as impressive as his wit. And his moral passion is as authentic as his love of words and life."--Cornel West, Dietrich Bonhoeffer Chair at Union Theological Seminary "I've seen Mehdi win every argument he's entered since we were at school. This is a masterclass from one of the most formidable debaters and interviewers of our time."--Riz Ahmed, Oscar-winning actor and musician "Mehdi was one of the toughest interviews I did in the White House. In this book, he takes us on a journey through his own experience over years as a journalist and through compelling examples from history to capture the thrill of winning arguments. His book includes the kind of specific advice and applicable tactics that will make readers want to finish the book and immediately go find a sparring partner." --Jen Psaki, former White House Press Secretary "Mehdi is a generationally talented interviewer. He has mastered his craft, and in this book, he generously spills his secrets."--Jonathan Swan, Emmy Award-winning reporter at The New York Times "Win Every Argument is hugely entertaining, deeply knowledgeable, and filled with illuminating tips and stories from Mehdi Hasan's life of debating, interviewing and advocating for his beliefs. Read this book to find your own voice while learning both the art and history of persuasion." --Ben Rhodes, author of After the Fall "Inside our digital echo chambers, it is far too easy to forgo persuasion in favor of performance. Yet Hasan reminds us that we will never change the world unless we change people's minds. An indispensable handbook for our high-stakes and polarized times." --Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine

This is an easily digestible argument about what rights we have, what rights Republicans are trying to take away, and how to stop them. Mystal explains how to protect the rights of women and people of color instead of cowering to the absolutism of gun owners and bigots. He explains the legal way to stop everything from police brutality to political gerrymandering, just by changing a few judges and justices. He strips out all of the fancy jargon conservatives like to hide behind and lays bare the truth of their project to keep America forever tethered to its slaveholding past.

No matter your goals, Atomic Habits offers a proven framework for improving - every day. James Clear, one of the world's leading experts on habit formation, reveals practical strategies that will teach you exactly how to form good habits, break bad ones, and master the tiny behaviors that lead to remarkable results. If you're having trouble changing your habits, the problem isn't you. The problem is your system. Bad habits repeat themselves again and again not because you don't want to change, but because you have the wrong system for change.

In the second edition of this witty and infectious book, Madsen Pirie builds upon his guide to using - and indeed abusing - logic in order to win arguments. By including new chapters on how to win arguments in writing, in the pub, with a friend, on Facebook and in 140 characters (on Twitter), Pirie provides the complete guide to triumphing in altercations ranging from the everyday to the downright serious.

Joel Trachtman's audiobook presents in plain and lucid terms the powerful tools of argument that have been honed through the ages in the discipline of law. If you are a law student or new lawyer, a business professional or a government official, this book will boost your analytical thinking, your foundational legal knowledge, and your confidence as you win arguments for your clients, your organizations, or yourself.

Imagine going through life never fearing if a disagreement or conflict will come up because you know you can handle it. Imagine welcoming arguments as an opportunity. Not just to win, but to actually deepen and improve your relationships.

As Hasan points out, there is no escaping arguments. Whether on Twitter, in Parliament or at the dinner table, we all feel the very human urge to voice our disagreement. Arguing itself often gets a bad rap and is blamed for everything from political polarisation to marital breakdown. But as Hasan contends, debate and argument are the very lifeblood of democracy. They are a means of establishing the truth, of opening our minds to new ideas and of working our way through problems. We just need to get better at them.

There is not much point in having brilliant ideas if we cannot persuade people of their value. Persuasive debaters can win arguments using the force of their reason and by the skillful deployment of many handy techniques.

We call this the 'Socratic Method'. This means questioning people in order to think critically about different view-points. Still sound complicated? Say your colleague is upset that you decided not to give them help with their project due to time issues. Rather than engaging in an argument where you deny all accusations levelled at you, instead ask questions like, "How does that make you feel?", "What would you rather I did?"

In the book Win Every Argument: The Art Of Debating, Persuading, And Public Speaking, Mehdi not only gives readers the guidebook on how to win arguments but also teaches readers how to be confident in any speech or debate given.He explains to readers how to exert confidence with everything you say, persuades people with words, and ultimately win any argument that arises.

So, you want to know how to win every argument? Start by recognizing that argumentation is the tool of the wise. Only a tyrant or a fool would mistake his or her personal truth for the one and only truth. Smart leaders make sure to surround themselves with dissenters who can share multiple truths in order to make the best decisions possible.

As you answer objections, you are motivated to dig deeper into your own experience, information, and communication skills in the hopes of making a better case. In this way, resistance can make your argument stronger, not threaten its existence.

Getting into an argument can be an extremely stressful experience. You can get so focused on "winning" that you forget to actually listen to the other person. Staying calm, taking a break before continuing, and delivering your arguments in a calm, rational matter (instead of screaming, or yelling, or crying) can make all the difference. While there's no guarantee that you'll win an argument, you will come across well and maybe carry that over into future successful arguments. 041b061a72
