This book is less about the how and more about the why of debate, but I love it because it succinctly makes the case for why debate and deliberative discourse is actually a tool for civic engagement and civility, rather than the hate and vitriol it’s often seen as. I also love it because half the proceeds go to supporting students’ development in debate. The author has coached a range of students in a variety of formats at all academic levels, including most recently serving to support debate in inner-city schools through the St. Louis Urban Debate League.
