Format: Paperback
I've taught critical thinking and business communication for YEARS using this book. Most of my students love it; many keep it and some who rented it ended up buying it. Some student reviewed it as being "boring" to read -- that's a kid who needs this book. It's not the kind of thing you sit down to read for diversion or enjoyment and you can't skim it and get its point, but if you read it and then apply the principles to the problems at the end of the chapters, you'll find that after a while your interpersonal relationships are working better, your problem solving skills have improved and you have more interest in life itself. For what it's worth, critical thinking as Ruggiero teaches in this book was never a strong point of my personality. I needed this book because I could not teach critical thinking; after a few years my own thinking skills evolved and improved. As Ruggiero writes, feeling is an important accessory to thinking since it points our attention to something we need to think about, but it cannot replace rational thought (and vice versa).

Bought for an English class. Very small, organized, and filled with amazingly though provoking ideas!

2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Philosophy Professor on September 23, 2014
Format: Paperback
This book lacks the basic fundamental principles of a logic class. Not only that, it makes assumptions about human behavior that are debated WITHIN philosophy! For example, on page 40 is says that there is a "wild card in human affairs--free will." The Free Will vs Determinism debate is not even MENTIONED yet is a large part of any critical thinking, logic, or even an Intro to Philosophy class! How could the author just make the leap to say unequivocally "The answer is because people possess free will" without critically analyzing all the evidence that shows that we do not, in fact, have free will. Any good text in philosophy must mention both sides of an argument so they can be critically analyzed. Isn't that the POINT of a critical thinking class? SMH
