520    "In a world where fake news stories change election 
       outcomes, has rationality become futile? In The Art of 
       Logic in an Illogical World, Eugenia Cheng throws a 
       lifeline to readers drowning in the illogic of 
       contemporary life. Cheng is a mathematician, so she knows 
       how to make an airtight argument. But even for her, logic 
       sometimes falls prey to emotion, which is why she still 
       fears flying and eats more cookies than she should. If a 
       mathematician can't be logical, what are we to do? In this
       book, Cheng reveals the inner workings and limitations of 
       logic, and explains why alogic--for example, emotion--is 
       vital to how we think and communicate. Cheng shows us how 
       to use logic and alogic together to navigate a world awash
       in bigotry, mansplaining, and manipulative memes. 
       Insightful, useful, and funny, this essential book is for 
       anyone who wants to think more clearly."--Amazon.com.
