Praise
"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."
From the Publisher
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.
