Editorial Reviews

Review

"The ease of use and the basic theme of critical thinking being a part of reading and writing in daily life and in the academic world makes this text a truly wonderful tool."

"Strong discussion of process, allowing students to easily put critical thinking into action in groups or with individual projects."

"There are many intriguing exercises throughout the chapters which provide a nexus between the academic learning process and the practicality of application of what has been learned."
