Publisher's Summary

If you have not been yourself for a long time because of environmental influences...

If you have not been able to make your ideas prevail over time because of an invisible current in which we are submerged...

If for a long time you unconsciously follow the trends dictated by society, there is something you should know...

Our mind has a strong tendency to form beliefs to make sense of existence. Human beings cannot help but have beliefs that guide them in their thinking and their actions, but today they live in an increasingly artificial and manipulated world in which beliefs often turn out to be illusions.

Furthermore, the human mind is subjected, for evolutionary reasons, to cognitive illusions that distort our perception of the world by inducing many prejudices or errors (cognitive bias). So how can we break out of these prisons?

According to Jason Dyer, "Critical Thinking" is able to conceptualize, apply, analyze, synthesize, and actively and expertly evaluate the information gathered by a precise observation, reasoning, or experience. It also has the ability to identify, analyze, and evaluate situations, ideas and information in order to formulate responses to problems.

In Critical Thinking, all the concepts mentioned above will be explained in detail with the practical aim of improving the life of the listener, bringing his thinking to a higher level.

In this audiobook Jason will explain:

  • What critical thinking is in everyday life
  • 10 ways to learn critical thinking by countering general conformism
  • Critical thinking to develop decision-making skills
  • The 12 rules for activating intelligent thinking
  • Problem solving and critical thinking
  • Critical thinking to gain confidence and combat the social phobia of the 21st century
  • The differences between critical thinking and critical sense
  • Argument Mapping: Learning to reason with mental maps
  • And much more!

Whatever type of personality you have, whatever role you play in society, whatever situation in your life you are going through, Critical Thinking will eradicate preconceptions and prejudices instilled in your mind from adolescence to reprogram thinking and take it to a level out of the ordinary with step-by-step processes studied and put into practice over a period of several years by Jason Dyer.

We are not responsible for what we are but we are responsible for what we do, so don't procrastinate about the vital aspects of your life. Acquire strategic thoughts and become an intelligent thinker.

Thinking critically is easier than expected

I am a critical thinker. It has taken me decades to discover and acquire the range of ideas and techniques clearly and concisely described in this excellent audible. The world we live in is awash with information, much of very dubious quality.

Good book, long listen, for beginners

Thoroughly enjoyed. Definitely a resource on my Audible. I can see myself going back to it in the future as a reference. Loved the examples in this book which really highlight the contrast between the two "operating systems" in our brains. A must listen!

Probably the best book I have ever listen!

The book explains that we are doomed to make cognitive errors and there's not much we can do about it. It is an easy listen, uses little jargon and makes a compelling case. I have made some changes in my life based on this book.

Enjoyable Listen

Excellent book Kind of long, but nevertheless fascinating. A deep, thought through, thought provoking book that challenges some of our fundamental behaviors. A very long book, and definitely not something that can be rushed through, but all the more satisfying for it.
