The authors also explain why critical thinking is important, and they make excellent recommendations for how to practice it. Whether you are new to the subject, or simply want to hone your critical thinking skills, this book would be a valuable addition to your critical thinking toolbox.
Disclosure: I served (on a purely volunteer basis) as a reviewer and proofreader for this book. So don't take my word for it, check it out for yourself - I'm sure you'll be satisfied.
Overall, the book was very clearly written, interesting, comprehensive, and accessible to students. I will definitely continue using it in future iterations of my course.
