Analysis: A Rulebook for Arguments - Intro

Hello everyone, this first part of the summaries of Anthony Weston's A Rulebook for Arguments I want to give you a preface of what I am going to be publishing next. First, I am going to include my eight summaries of Weston's book, probably on the same day (today). I read the book over the course of the last two weeks and summarized the chapters individually for my critical thinking and analysis philosophy course at my local college. After publishing the chapters, I will (soon) be uploading (the long awaited) chapter summaries of Thomas Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions. 
As aforementioned, I don't care if only one person sees this or none, but I want this blog to not only work as a channel from my maturing philosophical ideas into developed and serious thoughts but express my avocational interest in philosophy — particularly, philosophy of science. I also want to look back onto my published blog posts and see how much I've grown (hopefully) when I am away in undergrad school. So, after I post my summaries of Weston's A Rulebook for Arguments, I will upload my thoughts and inquiries on Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions. It might also be questioned why I simply don't just upload a review of Kuhn's essay, but, I feel, as only a philosophy enthusiast I have to delve into and analyze what Kuhn is trying to say.

Side note: I also, recently, got into reading Time magazine after it was recommended by my advanced English professor to subscribe to be updated and study the varying writing styles. I recently finished their latest issue, Our Sinking Planet, and will probably include an overall overview of some of the main topics touched upon and my thoughts, because it was, to say the least, a very interesting read.
