I'm using this book for an online class in Critical Thinking and it is just marvelous. The authors present the material in a clear and easy to understand way without talking down to their audience.

If you are unhappy with a text on critical thinking and writing, give this book a try.

This book was a requirement for my critical thinking college class. I'll be honest, I did not read all my assigned reading in it. Because frankly my class was based on writing papers and that is my strong point. But the portions I did read were good.

Better than the description! Only one folded page--barely! Absolutely perfect! I was just looking for the cheapest book and paid like $10 for it compared to $20 at my school! Thank you so much!

The book was in great condition when it arrived. It is paperback and pretty cheap. The book itself is somewhat useful.
