Appropriate for all level Critical Thinking courses in English, Social Science, Philosophy, Education, Journalism, and Mass Communication departments. * This highly popular text helps students bridge the gap between simply memorizing or blindly accepting information and the greater challenge of critical analysis and synthesis. It teaches them to respond to alternative points of view and develop a solid foundation for making personal choices about what to accept and what to reject as they read and listen.

Review: Asking the Right Questions: A Guide to Critical Thinking

User Review  - Stephanie - Goodreads

This book taught me a lot about how I think, and how the assumptions I (and others) have affect our quality of thought. Clarified a whole bunch. Ambiguity, fallacies, assumptions, values, evidence. It's all in here and more. Read full review
