A waste of paper!
on February 19, 2013
This book is drawn out and stretched to the limits, and a terrible read overall. It's far too simple for anyone older than 12 years old.
Each two pages can be summed up in about a sentence! Only one or two sentences is useful in each couple of pages. It's dreadful and I feel like it's torture reading this for a "critical thinking" english class. Maybe it's because I already know how to think critically and the differences, but seriously, it takes them a total of thirty pages in two different chapters (so far, I'll admit I haven't finished this book yet) to say, "People have different opinions everywhere because of differences in their lives and/or society."
Also as a point of personal annoyance, the author uses the word "kinds of" things, when they clearly mean, "types of" things. There is a difference, and that difference is that one is grammatically/logically/definitively right and one is wrong.
I'll post a cliffnotes version of this entire book soon. You don't need to waste your money on this garbage-y book. As a college student, I'm insulted my teacher even considered this to be a required reading. It's complete trash for college-level students!
