The introduction to this book asserts that the world is becoming both more complex and less liberal as a result of knee-jerk reactions and short-term thinking. In contrast, say Richard W. Paul and Linda Elder, critical thinking helps people cope with the uncertainties of modern life and become more confident in their decisions. By mastering the tools and techniques of critical thinking, they say, readers will be able to improve their emotional and intellectual skills, their job performance and the success of their organizations. Their claims about material benefits may be somewhat exaggerated, so getAbstract suggests applying some of that critical thinking to the authors┬┐ generalizations. Nonetheless, their overall points are well-made, and readers will find these skills and techniques intriguing and very useful.

If you have ever wondered HOW problems seem to encroach into your life
or WHY you seem to have a problem in dealing with them...read this!
I feel this book should be required reading for all high school and
college students. An extremely beneficial course can be taught with
this book as the primary text. A recommended read for all post-school
adults as well! Regardless of your state in life, you will find yourself within this book.

    This book presents in a clear way how to improve your thinking, I consider it valuable not just because of the topic which is quite important, but the way it takes you to understand and reflect about how you think. I do recommend this book.
