Inspiring and insightful

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.

Extremely engaging

Great introduction to critical thinking. Does not delve deep into the topics but provides you with enough information to paint a clear picture.

Great for bigginers, perhaps not as helpful for intermediate or advanced critical thinkers seeking to improve further.

Highly recommended

Fantastic book and performance

In a world where people can't seem to agree on what facts are anymore, it seems that critical thinking is in far too short supply. People seem content to only accept information that goes along with the opinions and beliefs they already hold.

It does shift the way you think

While one read through won’t revolutionize the way you think, keeping it on hand as a regular reference seems to have the potential to frame your mindset in a more logical, crustal thinking sort of way.
I’m glad I purchased it
