Read sections 4.1.4 (p. 191-193), 4.2 (p. 197-199), and 4.3.6 (p. 206) to review three important types of fallacies you probably come across in life without realizing it: false dichotomy, causal slippery slope fallacy, and appeal to authority.

All three of these fallacies can be disguised as something that looks logical, but these readings will help you identify when that is not the case.
