Description

The 4th edition features a new section on argument mapping techniques, which help readers to visualize the structures of an argument. Written by Stella Cottrell, leader in the field with over one million book sales to date, this text breaks down a complex subject into easily understood blocks, providing easy-to-follow, step-by-step explanations and practice activities to develop understanding and practise your skills at each stage. Stella Cottrell’s student-centred approach demystifies critical thinking and breaks down a complex subject into manageable chunks. Finally, it triggered me to explore the subject of critical thinking more broadly, by referring to similar books. 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!

Stella Cottrell's student-centred approach demystifies critical thinking and breaks down a complex subject into manageable chunks. Written by internationally renowned author Stella Cottrell, this is an essential resource for students looking to refine their thinking, reading and writing skills. Personally, the only valuable information I got from the book was a review of what critical thinking is and a step by step guide to be able to put them into practice better.Critical thinking includes the component skills of analyzing arguments, making inferences using inductive or deductive reasoning, judging or evaluating, and making decisions or solving problems. I found that a lot of it was really just common sense, but the book spells out what common sense actually is in the context of responding to written arguments, which is helpful and made me realise quite how much is involved in a process that I previously took for granted. This article will also talk about the critical aspects of this form of thinking as well as some critical questions that can be asked to further develop thinking. This book helped me immensely with my critical thinking skills, so much so I can see the benefits in other parts of my education. A complex subject is broken down into easy to understand blocks, with clear explanations, good examples, and plenty of activities to develop understanding at each stage.

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. If you have absolutely no critical skills whatsoever then this book might well be worth it, although they will teach you these skills in high school english class over and over again without you even noticing.

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. The second edition of this leading guide helps students to develop reflective thinking skills, improve their critical analysis and construct arguments more effectively.
