Audible Editor Reviews

Critical thinking is an important skill not just in school, but in life as well, and this primer from John Carroll University philosophy professor Sharon M. Kaye gives listeners a sound basis for analyzing arguments wherever one may encounter them. Performed clearly and confidently by Andrea Powell, this audiobook begins by defining what an argument is, and then moves on to concepts such as induction and deduction, and validity and soundness of reasoning. Powell's crisp narration is supremely listenable, making Kaye's lessons easy to absorb for students and laypersons alike.

    "missing illustrations"

    the text made frequent reference to illustrations that were not included in the download. otherwise it is a decent introduction to the topic.
