"So often today educators are caught in the crossfire of opinions about critical thinking. Should it be taught? Can it be taught? Is it being learned? Why can't people think anymore? Donald Karshner offers students and teachers alike practical guidance to developing and applying critical thinking skills in a wide array of common situations, ranging from watching television to parsing political arguments to governing organizations and people wisely. Anyone who seeks to be consciously engaged with the world today will find value in this thought-provoking book."
"Deftly organized into two major sections, Donald Karshner's Be a Critical Thinker is itself a model of rational thought and highly recommended and instructive. Thoroughly 'reader friendly' in style and presentation, Be a Critical Thinker would make an excellent high school or college curriculum textbook supplement for Philosophy or Political Science classes. Very highly recommended for community and academic library collections."
"Be a Critical Thinker: Hone Your Mind to Think Critically by Donald L. Karshner teaches readers to do precisely that through analyzing, checking sources of information, doubting assumptions, accepting other points of view, challenging other points of view, taking notes, etc
"Donald L. Karshner offers a kind of manual for everyone who wants to widen their horizons - students, scholars, and ordinary people alike. I particularly liked the thought provoking affirmations like "one person's true religion may be another person's false religion" or "one person's myth may be another person's reality." The book is enjoyable to read and I recommend it to anyone who is not afraid to challenge their own preconceptions and beliefs, and who will open their mind towards critical thinking."
A revised edition of Be a Critical Thinker was published in January 2015 and is available as a print and e-book on Amazomn.com.
