For all level Critical Thinking, Argumentative Writing, and Informal Logic courses in English, Social Science, Philosophy, Education, Journalism, and Mass Communication departments.

It teaches them to respond to alternative points of view and develop a solid foundation for making personal choices about what to accept and what to reject.

Review:

"I have assigned ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS to a wide range of students in a wide range of courses over my fourteen years as a college professor. First-year college students have used the book to analyze and evaluate arguments about contemporary business issues. College juniors and seniors have used the book to analyze and evaluate legal arguments, and issues related to race and gender. … Many of my students tell me the book has changed the way they read, write, and argue." — Andrea Giampetro-Meyer, J.D., Loyola College in Maryland



"I think ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS is one of the most valuable resources currently available for higher education courses as well as for other contexts…. Virtually any course could benefit from the addition of this book and the integration of the authors' approach to critical thinking. I myself have used the book for several years in a variety of courses and know that it has truly enhanced my students' rational thinking processes." — Norrine L. Ostrowski, Ph.D., University of Minnesota-Morris



"As an instructor I like the approach ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS takes. It is practical and uses a cross-disciplinary approach. Asking the "right" questions is a technique that can be used in any discipline at any level."— Valeri Farmer-Dougan, Illinois State University
