Annotation:
Maintaining his focus on deductive reasoning, Shand provides a slim, if dense, introduction to the fine art of argumentation--or critical thinking. He discusses what it takes to argue well and why, on occasion, good thinking is abandoned.

Praise

Philosopher's Magazine
"For those who are diligent and attentive by nature, this book is a wonderfully concise introduction to reasoning. For those who are by instinct more intellectually lazy, more encouragement is needed." - Joseph Chandler Winter 2001
