"A solid treatment of the relevant topics, well designed to develop the reader's reasoning skills. Students will find it both engaging and challenging."- Steve Hiltz, Southern Methodist University
"The book is a rigorous and comprehensive introduction to critical thinking and elementary logic, with helpful chapters on statistical, analogical, causal and moral argument. Its breadth is impressive. It's the most comprehensive critical thinking text I know of."- Hugh Wilder, The College of Charleston
"This is a text that is both student friendly and teacher friendly; for teachers it provides reference materials with appropriate depth and breadth, and for students it provides an unpretentious approach to a subject that is often perceived as complex and addresses student concern that critical thinking is a 'pointless' subject."- Michelle Darnell, Fayetteville State University
