From the Author :

If you like this book, you may well enjoy applying your Critical Thinking skills to the big debates in contemporary science (which my book Paradigm Shift is about) - or to those evergreen problems of philosophy which my two '101' books present. These books present problems in very short passages - ideal for group brainstorming!

* Ps those CTS tests: for anyone still scratching their heads, I better put this right: on p89, Q10: the correct number of miles per day 226, and as to the bonus question there were three people drinking tea originally, and Grandma makes the fourth). In question 10 too, the equation needed is actually (rounding up the cost of renting from £19.99 to £20) something like: 20 + (number-of-miles - 100)*1 = 100 + (number-of-miles*0.2).

From the Back Cover :

Learn to:

  • Identify other people's arguments and conclusions
  • Interpret and produce your argument more effectively
  • Read between the lines, see behind surfaces and identify false assumptions
  • Apply critical thinking to assignments

Analyse, evaluate and apply information to create cohesive arguments

Have you ever received feedback suggesting you need to be more critical in your assignments? Written specifically for students, this friendly guide takes the intimidation out of the topic and provides hands-on, active instruction and exercises to help you apply critical thinking in your academic work to achieve higher grades.

  • Have a think — grasp the science and sociology behind thinking and find out how to assess your thinking sills
  • Put the pieces together — find out how critical thinking is like solving puzzles
  • Your critical thinking toolbox — use mind maps, concept flow charts, dump lists, meta-thinking, virtues and vices and triangulation
  • Put it to practice — apply critical thinking to reading, writing, speaking and listening
  • Smoke and mirrors — separate fact from opinion, know a writer's (or speaker's) position and utilise sound source checking

Open the book and find:

  • The who, where and when of thinking
  • How to know your 'thinking habits'
  • Why you should beware of being too critical
  • The logic of real arguments
  • How to be a rational animal
  • Unsound argument tactics to avoid
  • Lots of exercises to help you master your skills
