The text Backpacks vs. Briefcases discusses the importance of rhetorical analysis and explains how rhetoric is utilized to make informed decisions and conclusions in everyday occurrences. The text also states where rhetoric can be found and how to discern the different aspects of rhetoric. Carroll writes “If we refuse to stop and think about how and why it persuades us, we can become mindless consumers ho buy into arguments.”
