Excellent Book

I have enjoyed listening to this book and learned a lot in the process. The author did a great job explaining critical thinking. In comparison with some other books on the subject, the examples of arguments provided in the book are not biased against religion or anything. This book is a great work on critical thinking. I would recommend anyone to read it.
