THINK Critically is a cutting-edge self-reflective guide for improving critical thinking skills through careful analysis, reasoned inference and thoughtful evaluation of contemporary culture and ideas.
Taking cues from everyday life -- education, business, health sciences, social work, law, government policy issues and current events -- THINK Critically bridges the principles of critical thinking with real-world application.
With a highly-visual design, accessible narrative, and interactive approach, THINK Critically strengthens students¿ skills and motivation to make reasoned judgments.
This text introduces critical thinking by showcasing what vital and central positive habits of mind are, revisiting and building upon those skills throughout the text.
Jam-packed with engaging examples and masterful exercises, THINK Critically explains how to clarify ideas, analyze arguments, and evaluate inductive, deductive, comparative, ideological and empirical reasoning.
A robotic reader can ruin an otherwise interesting work. It caused a dull ache between my eyes just to concentrate on the narrator's voice, and after seven grueling minutes, I was tempted to accuse Mina Sands of impersonating a human being. I am fairly certain that a computerized voice program of some kind was used. As it is, please be more discerning than I was and take a few minutes to listen to the audio sample that audible offers above. With a little patience, you'll begin to feel my pain but hopefully avoid paying anything to do so.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
The textbook should be abridged on tape.
What did you like best about this story?
The information is good. The reader needs to slow down and sound interested in the subject.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I believe the narrator took away from the listeners experience. She read too fast and sounded uninterested.
Do you think THINK Critically needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
If they want to sell more books I believe they need to change to speed and tone of the narration.
