Publisher's Summary

Here's how you can weather the storm and start thinking clearly!

Let's see the facts. Your mind is under siege.

Every single day, you are bombarded with thousands of news stories, hundreds of fake news articles, secret agendas, and bad science. You need to develop a defense mechanism that will allow you to hold your ground and improve your life.

And the name of that defense mechanism? Critical thinking!

Imagine if you could develop a new skill that would:

  • Unleash Your Creativity
  • Encourage Positive Curiosity
  • Boost Your Problem-Solving Skills 

And help you navigate the foggy waters of mass media, online hysteria, and social media angst. 

Would you be interested in developing critical thinking? 

This is a simple, easy-to-follow, critical thinking science guide that will change the way you perceive your world and react to it.

When dealing with the subject of practical critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making, Ian leaves no stone unturned, in order to offer you a clear idea of the importance of critical thinking in your daily life.

Five key takeaways from this game-changing rational thinking audiobook:

  • Learn more about our biases and where they stem from
  • Understand the bystander effect, the confirmation bias, the halo effect, and more
  • Discover how our biases are used against us
  • Protect yourself from fake news and bad science
  • Sharpen your critical thinking skills 

That's not all!

We have entered uncharted waters and it's extremely important to prepare yourself for the perfect storm of fake news, which is certain to develop during these chaotic and uncertain times.

By the time you finish listening to this audiobook on the basics of critical thinking, you will feel more confident when dealing with problems, and be laser-focused on the things that actually matter.

What are you waiting for? Start thinking clearly - today!

Awesome one

The greatest idea is to be certain of the clarity-are you clear what the goal is, have you inspected and define terms, what is or are the assumptions, and what experience, observations and facts do you have. and finally, is there a need-if you haven't obtain your goals is because is a want but is not a need or necessity.

Think Smarter - and get this book!

This book was very easy to read and did make a lot of sense. I wish this book was required reading for freshmen in high school. I was able to skim through the book and still pick up important pieces of information. I will be going back to read it more carefully. I like his writing style, not prosy or verbose.

Great one

Think Smarter is one of several books exploring the world of structured thinking and problem-solving. Both are critical in a world where we are asked to make multiple complex decisions every day and many times without really knowing it. Kallet's book provides useful tools as well as processes to help clear the clutter and recognize issues and options.

Guide on Critical Thinking

This a good addition to one's collection of critical thinking books. Has lots of application on business and personal life. It's always important to study and revise critical thinking to avoid falling into the trap of too many emotions in decision making.

Great book!

Enjoyed reading the book. Very simple and easy to understand. I provide very handy techniques. I think the physical copy would be slightly better though because the book has a lot of hands-on exercises which I think would be easier to do with an actual hard copy.

Insightful book

This is a great audiobook on how to approach the decision-making process critically. The author has the experience and uses it to illustrate the points and processes well. Time well spent for any manager or decision-maker. The voice for the audio narration is also great. Sounds authoritative and is clear

The book is very well-researched

The book is very well-researched. Ian has made it easy to follow his thinking—despite the cerebral topic. He exposes many of the operating systems set up to trap us into making extremely bad decisions. Ian does his best to explain those traps while at the same time he encourages us to examine our own biases and faulty thinking. What better time in our chaotic world to have such a helpful guide. Great book!
