This book fosters the development of fair-minded critical thinking.

Review:

"This book is well-written, lucid and contains abundant examples and applications that not only enliven the subject matter but present relevant contexts for building understanding and advanced critical thinking.  In addition, it is faithful to the complexity and work required to improve one's thinking.  It does not soft-pedal the challenge but actually throws down the gauntlet to the worthy Reader to pick it up."

--Stephen J. Knopp, Ph.D., Ohio University 

"This concise version is a more comprehensive and robust textbook.  Many Critical Thinking books cover thinking from a narrow angle, but Paul and Elder offer a model of critical thinking that can be applied not only to academic disciplines but also to life in general."

--Connie Wolfe, Surry Community College
