Becoming a Critical Thinker A User Friendly Manual Press Reviews

The organizational scheme is logical. The sequenced chapters are progressively arranged with student learning in mind. At the initial, the author grasps the reader's attention with the catchy topics. - Charlene Tuckerson, John F. Kennedy University The chapter checkup, the key terms with corresponding page numbers, and the chapter highlights at the end of each chapter are quite helpful. - Cecilia Moore-Cobb, Pitt Community College A wide variety of examples and analogies is one of the book's many strengths. Specifically, references to pop culture help students readily identify with the material. -James Bower, Walla Walla Community College
