About this deal

Its great that the chapters give you the possibility of doing a few exercises to practice the skills, however there is very little novelty in the book. The book also very cleverly highlights many 'pitfalls' of writing which (most) people tend to make in their writing without realising.

Background knowledge is a necessary but not a sufficient condition for enabling critical thought within a given subject.

As a university student, this book was recommended to me by my lecturer, so it came highly praised and it has certainly lived up to it! Our donations to The Rainbow Centre have helped provide an education and a safe haven to hundreds of children who live in appalling conditions. Critical Thinking Skills provides an easy to follow, step by step guide to developing analytical reasoning skills and applying them to tasks such as reading, note-making and writing.Beginning with the basics and building towards structured evaluations of longer texts, this book offers invaluable guidance to both students and general readers.

Critical thinking no doubt has become an integral part of education, the world of work, and even our regular life. Essential for students who are mystified by tutor comments such as 'more critical analysis needed', this is an invaluable tool for anyone wishing to develop advanced skills in this area and learn to apply them to tasks such as reading, writing and note-taking. No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. With this in mind, Critical Thinking Skills has taken the seemingly baffling art of analysis and broken it down into easy to understand blocks, with clear explanations, good examples, and plenty of activities to develop understanding at each stage.Stella Cottrell was formerly Director of Lifelong Learning at the University of Leeds, UK, and Pro Vice-Chancellor for Learning and Teaching at the University of East London, UK. Clarity, consistency and structure -- Reading between the lines: recognising underlying assumptions and implicit arguments -- Does it add up?

At whatever stage of learning you are at, Critical Thinking Skills takes the seemingly baffling art of analysis and makes it not so baffling. All in all, this book is an excellent source to deepen your understanding, reinforce your learning, and develop the skill to read between lines; not to forget effective note-making.

Good book, especially for people that are just starting university and who may need a good "tutorial" for learning a solid reading and writing method. This easy to follow, step-by step guide to developing reasoning skills even applies the techniques to tasks such as reading, note-taking, and writing.
