What was even more surprising was that, people were persuading me successfully without even being aware of it. I was intrigued to learn how powerful persuasion can be through arguments and writing. In the past years of English , the terms “ethos, pathos, logos” have been taught and drilled repeatedly, but the book “Thank You For Arguing” was the one that taught me how powerful these concepts really were.
