Win Every Firehouse Argument: Use Critical Thinking To Win Friends And Influence Enemies.

On top of that, they spend another 52% trying to persuade others. This presentation will help you learn to quickly identify myths and factual errors (like the one above) and improve your critical thinking skills to avoid falling victim to logical fallacies and other arguments that sound good, but don’t hold water.
