Read full description of the books:
Although I may disagree with a point here or there, Professor Patrick Grim's course of twenty-four lectures is, overall, excellent. I especially liked Lecture 14, "Bogus Arguments and How to Defuse Them," and Lecture 17, "Putting a Spin on Statistics." These lectures examine common fallacies in deductive and inductive argumentation. Other lectures explore the nature of scientific and philosophical reasoning. Professor Grim has assembled a great variety of materials, which he distills in a clear and effective presentation.
