Format: Paperback
I have used this text in my own critical thinking course over a dozen times. The text may be more challenging than others, but it is also more rewarding. The emphasis of the text is on developing our linguistic skills to be on par with our already-developed reasoning skills. This makes us more reflective, and more articulate, reasoners. The book uses examples culled from newspapers which makes for engrossing student activities. This also helps students see the relevance of applying the material outside the classroom.

One note of caution on the printing: If possible, buy the third printing (or any printing beyond the third). The first two have several compositing errors which seemed to have slipped by the copy editors. Though these don't detract from the reading of the text, they can be slightly distracting in the learning process.

The seller did their job, it was in great condition and a great price, but the problem with this is that the material is just ridiculous, I may venture to say it is one of the worst reads I have ever had.

The book as nothing to do with philosophy or writing. I have met the Professor who sometimes gets confused about what he has written. It is not easy, its difficult to grasp, and I am sure there are better books out there.
