Why it’s news
Arguing and debates are a part of life that everyone will go through at some point. Some debates are more significant than others, but one thing typically is true about all arguments—everyone wants to be correct.
Arguments and debates tend to happen because both people believe they are right, and Mehdi Hasan has thorough experience in debating with others and has released a book to explain his guide on the importance of arguments and how to win them.
In the book Win Every Argument: The Art Of Debating, Persuading, And Public Speaking, Mehdi not only gives readers the guidebook on how to win arguments but also teaches readers how to be confident in any speech or debate given.
He explains to readers how to exert confidence with everything you say, persuades people with words, and ultimately win any argument that arises.
In the book, he explains that one of his most important pieces of speaking advice is to use “good anecdotes and gripping narratives” to get audiences invested. He says that adding a little humor into a serious debate can throw the other opponent off, defusing tension and building rapport.
He states that after reading the book, anyone can exert the skills and win their next big debate.
