“Fresh and original”

“Relates to real-life problems in decision and judgment making”

“Exercises give readers something substantial to think about, not just another set of boring drills that do not really test the application of skills in real-life critical thinking.”

“Immediately a pleasure to hold, read, and peruse.”

“Theoretically informed reinforced by important scholarship.”

“Facione and Gittens’ book is to be highly recommended just for the interest it is sure to bring to students”

“This book breaks the mold of traditional critical thinking pedagogy.” I recommend it for any course explicitly is billed as introduction to critical thinking. … This textbook satisfies criteria that any quality critical thinking textbook should meet, but that many other textbooks fail to live up to.”
