Editorial Reviews

Review

"Deftly organized into two major sections, Donald Karshner's Be a Critical Thinker is itself a model of rational thought and highly recommended and instructive. Thoroughly 'reader friendly' in style and presentation, Be a Critical Thinker would make an excellent high school or college curriculum textbook supplement for Philosophy or Political Science classes. Very highly recommended for community and academic library collections."

- The Midwest Book Review, Small Press Bookwatch, November 2013


"Be a Critical Thinker: Hone Your Mind to Think Critically by Donald L. Karshner teaches readers to do precisely that through analyzing, checking sources of information, doubting assumptions, accepting other points of view, challenging other points of view, taking notes, etc

Donald L. Karshner offers a kind of manual for everyone who wants to widen their horizons - students, scholars, and ordinary people alike. I particularly liked the thought provoking affirmations like "one person's true religion may be another person's false religion" or "one person's myth may be another person's reality." The book is enjoyable to read and I recommend it to anyone who is not afraid to challenge their own preconceptions and beliefs, and who will open their mind towards critical thinking."

I received 'Be a Critical Thinker: Hone Your Mind to Think Critically' by Donald Karshner in exchange for a honest review.

It's a short but that the author covers some topics about critical thinking, such as the purpose, preparing to think critically and how to go about it. The descriptive parts are short and succinct. Examples comes mainly as questions / statements that should come to our minds when we want to think critically.

The author realizes that thinking critically is something a person has to develop. While some hints and ideas can be suggested, it's up to a person to develop these skills and can take even years to be good at critical thinking. Still worth the read. It certainly give food for thought and even some basic ideas of how to start.

Karshner does an effective and efficient job of focusing the reader on stopping the rapid pace of decision making in order to receive better results. His list of questions and clarity of message are very effective in making his point.

This book will more usefully serve as a reference guide rather than a sit-down read. I have never realized before how gullible we Americans can be. The simple statement, "Why can't people think anymore?", has never been more true. This helpful book is very easy to read, and I would recommend it particularly to people entering college or preparing to write an important essay. I must also say that every aspiring writer NEEDS to read this book.
