Purdue, Penn State, and Columbia Professors Agree! Thank You for Arguing Is One of the Best Books on Rhetoric
Rhetoric—the art and science of persuasion—is not just an important skill but, according to journalist/author Jay Heinrichs, it is the essential skill.
Heinrichs’ bestselling book on the topic, Thank You for Arguing: What Aristotle, Lincoln, and Homer Simpson Can Teach Us About the Art of Persuasion, renders the principles of argument clearly and simply — and keeps students engaged all the way. Dozens of colleges including Purdue University (for an English 106 – English Composition course) and Columbia University have selected the book for their curriculum.
“Magazine executive Heinrichs is a clever, passionate and erudite advocate for rhetoric, the 3,000-year-old art of persuasion, and his user-friendly primer brims with anecdotes, historical and popular-culture references, sidebars, tips and definitions.” —Publishers Weekly
