Great book

It has a bunch of little tips and guides throughout the book to help one improve their brain power. One major theme of the book is questioning our own interpretations and those of others. We have to be critical and analytical of our own assumptions and biases. Bradley also stresses regular exercise to improve brain functioning. It helps supply oxygen to our cortex to think clearer. And finally, we should diversify our challenges to constantly seek new summits to reach. I highly recommend this book.

BEST AUDIO BOOK....

Critical thinking is very rewarding. With lessons like this, nobody can outsmart you. This book will spruce up our reasoning routine and break the bad thinking propensities. The message is astounding and completely less demanding to fathom than any book I had recently. There aren’t any fillers or fluff that makes the whole subject more muddled to understand. It was essentially sufficient to understand and reasonable enough to use.

Not Very Impressed

Very basic. Quite repetitive. Does use a single example throughout the entire book to demonstrate any of the very basic points. Is constantly self promoting..... i.e. how learning critical thinking will ‘change your life’ ... without actually imparting any valuable knowledge. Cannot recommend, unfortunately.

helped me

This is a decent primary book for those intrigued by critical intuition before wandering into weightier books regarding the matter. It has essential critical intuition rule that anybody can utilize and take advantage of. This book has motivated me to peruse more books on this and related subjects.

Super guide

This book outlined pleasant and important understanding into the lost practice of critical considering. This book is precisely what American curriculum has been missing and we badly need it. The odds and ends that I read were truly straightforward and written in a way that I would have the capacity to recall the thoughts even days after. It has a one of a kind diagram of methods that will enhance our reasoning skills. It gave more extensive classifications and layouts to outline our way in dealing with thinking all the more successfully.

This book is for students who need to know the ins and outs of critical thinking. An excellent book. I want it for another reason and intend to use parts of it for an adults course - not directly but to gather it with other ideas.

I may not need to read anything else in the book besides the first chapter. It shows step-by-step the guidelines on how to paraphrase. It goes straight for the throat. Indespensible for aspiring writers!

Thanks to the author.....

Critical thinking is mostly applied in our daily lives. We make decision almost every second of the day. It starts in the morning until the moment we close our eyes in the evening. From smallest things to the biggest things that matters, we need to use our brains

solution for critical thinking

Has a load of tips and guidelines throughout the book. This guide helped me develop my mind and that in turn helped me to be less stressed out in difficult situations and think things through first to get a perfect answer. It feels really refreshing when you ultimately come up with a solution for your troubles.
A good guidebook.
