    No skill is more important in today's world than being able to think about, understand, and act on information in an effective and responsible way. What's more, at no point in human history have we had access to so much information, with such relative ease, as we do in the 21st century. But because misinformation out there has increased as well, critical thinking is more important than ever. These 24 rewarding lectures equip you with the knowledge and techniques you need to become a savvier, sharper critical thinker in your professional and personal life.

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    Everyone needs to learn and use critical thinking skills, especially today when we are bombarded with piles of information, both valid and BS, and determining one from the other is the difference between being a realist and a crackpot. This course is a comprehensive introduction to:

    - How your brain processes, constructs and perceives the world.
    - Logical fallacies.
    - How to participate in arguments.
    - How the scientific method works, and how to interpret it's findings.
    - Various tales of conspiracy theories, pseudoscience, science gone wrong and experts gone rogue!

    And more. Once you are done, you won't know what to think. You will know HOW to think. I can't recommend this course more: if you have a credit, get this now.

    The speaker is well spoken and not boring to listen to. In fact, he has one other TGC lecture on Audible, and I now look forward to listen to that as well.
