This succinct, interdisciplinary introduction to critical thinking successfully dares students to question their own assumptions and to enlarge their thinking through the analysis of the most common problems associated with everyday reasoning. The text offers a unique and effective organization: Part I explains the fundamental concepts; Part II describes the most common barriers to critical thinking; Part III offers strategies for overcoming those barriers.

I generally don't take the time to write reviews, but this book was so appallingly bad, I couldn't help myself. I was assigned this for an English class and had to drag myself through it. Ruggiero again and again makes binary assertions for philosophical quandaries that are not nearly so cut and dry.
The idea that critical thinking and feelings have to exist separately is disturbing and so deeply full of logical fallacies.

It's a good book not only for a guide to critical thinking, I found the last chapter is also very useful which is talking about how to persuade others.
I recommand this book not only because it is helpful for any one to form his own opinion or keep critical thinking, but also that in our country, our education system lack these books or effective discussion seriously.

A good book taking one on a detailed tour of critical thinking: the role of personal biases, opinions, various kinds of evidence, logical errors, and even how to do scholarly research. An introduction, yes, but society needs to improve its critical thinking skills. I would like to see this subject taught in schools.

One of the best books (textbooks) on critical thinking I've read. A book for beginners, Ruggiero sets out to lay down the fundamentals of informal logic. The readability of this book is what I think sets it apart. It would easily allow it to be digested by those new to the studies of logic and critical thinking. He presents things in a conversational tone, while giving examples in application.
Highly recommended for those new to critical thinking or those experienced minds looking to clear off some of the barnacles that tend to form over time. Especially if you don't use or practice!
