Format: Paperback
This book should be the standard text of a course in critical thinking taught in every high school in this country. The citizens of the United States need a book like this as a way of teaching people how to sort out the deluge of opinion and cant that spews out of every orifice of the media. Somebody please get this book back into print!

This is the true use of critical thinking written by a political scientist. It presents a down to earth practical application of critical thinking. The type of thinking we all should use to make inportant choices.

Format: Paperback
Having been forced to use this in a college course, I can say that this is perhaps the worst college text I have ever seen. Meehan's pseudo-scientific breakdown of decisions into different factors would have been laughable had I not been assigned his questions, which simply asked us to summarize topic sentence of various paragraphs. Indeed the greatest irony is that a book on critical thinking asked no questions that actually required critical thinking, only the ability to summarize.

Don't inflict this book on your students.
