Critical Thinking : Tools for Taking Charge of Your Professional and Personal Life
Get smarter -- in every part of your life!
Practical, common-sense approaches to "critical thinking" that help you take control of your life, cope with any challenge -- and pursue your dreams and values more successfully!
Addresses all three key components of thinking: analysis, evaluation and re-thinking.
Presents practical activities that give you practice testing your powerful new ways of thinking!
The world gets more complex every day -- and you have to cope with that complexity in every part of your life, personal and professional. This book gives you the practical critical thinking skills you need to take control of your life, help you cope with virtually any situation -- and be more successful in pursuing your ultimate dreams and values. You'll learn how to "take thinking apart" -- both yours, and others -- and assess that thinking for quality. You'll understand all three components of thinking: analysis, evaluation and re-thinking -- and, through "brains-on" exercises, learn new thinking skills you'll use constantly. The skills you'll learn will help you think more clearly, accurately, precisely, deeply, logically, and broadly. The result: you'll be able to solve problems more effectively, make better decisions, avoid manipulation by individuals or the media, recognize pathological thinking when you encounter it, and become more intellectually autonomous and courageous. For everyone who wants to become more effective in their professional and personal lives.
