Mehdi Hasan | Paperback | March 2023
No one ever goes into an argument intending to lose. Indeed, it is no exaggeration to say that every single person on the face of the planet has, at some point in their lives, tried to win an argument. Because arguments are everywhere. Whether it is in the comments section on Facebook, or in the Houses of Parliament, or at the dinner table. We cannot escape the human urge, need and, yes, desire to argue.
Mehdi Hasan believes that anyone can win an argument. As a journalist, anchor and interviewer who has clashed with politicians, generals, spies and celebrities from across the world, Hasan will reveal his tricks of the trade - sixteen different ways to get the upper hand in a debate, from the Rule of 3 to Judo Moves.
The book will also be chock-full of vivid examples and behind-the-scenes anecdotes from Hasan's own debates, which have ranged from the Oxford Union in England to Kyiv in Ukraine, as well as from U.S. presidential debates and scenes from movies and TV shows like Star Trek and A Few Good Men. Win Every Argument will unpack words of wisdom from everyone from the ancient philosopher Aristotle to the WWE wrestler Ronda Rousey.
