A fallacy is the use of invalid or otherwise faulty reasoning , or "wrong moves"  in the construction of an argument. Some fallacies are committed intentionally to manipulate or persuade by deception , while others are committed unintentionally due to carelessness or ignorance. The soundness of legal arguments depends on the context in which the arguments are made.
The identification of fallacies in both the professional and personal environment is discussed. Several commonly encountered fallacies are briefly described and examples included. After the fallacies have been identified, three specific tools available for dealing with fallacies when they arise are examined. These tools are described in limited detail and provide a solid framework for further personal development. Rudolph, P. Report bugs here.

Only the internal structure matters, but it is difficult to see through the layers of flesh that cover it.
