Becoming a Critical Thinker: A User-Friendly Manual teaches you how to think critically about the things that matter in your life. Author Sherry Diestler guides you to develop the skills to successfully evaluate the many claims facing you as a citizen, a learner and a consumer. In doing so, she helps you to become a strong decision maker and a confident advocate for your beliefs.
The 7th Edition offers coverage of resonant contemporary topics such as how social media affects decision making and how marketers influence consumers. An increased emphasis on practical application of critical thinking skills helps you understand how to apply course concepts to your personal, social and political concerns.
