    1. There was a lot going on in this book. Ruggiero recognized that, I think, and that's why he advised to read it incrementally rather than all at once. Reading it straight through--even over a period of several days--was a bit overwhelming. Not only is it jam-packed with information, the scope of the information is far-reaching. It was often intimidating to read profound thoughts on diverse subjects within a span of a few pages. I think this is a good reference/guidebook for many disciplines and a [...]

    2. A valuable tool for teaching critical thinking and problem-solving skills. The text provides many activities and suggestions for further research.

    3. Makes me feel like the author thinks the reader is an idiot. I personally feel that it emphasizes the idea of being overly critical and analytical about the way that people talk and perceive things. I don't want to over analyze what someone means when they tell me their opinion on something I might have skipped the part where it says to have an open mind, but the author seems to insinuate that their methods are the best way.While being analytical of a viewpoint or opinion on something can give y [...]

    4. I used to teach a course called Critical Reading and Writing, and this was the textbook I used. It's a great book, and my students did very well expanding their abilities to be both critical and creative.The course was really about being constructively critical in an articulate way, but it was a big help to take them through the creative part of the book first; that experience gave them insight into the process of creation.

    5. This book is an awesome tool for writers and even for readers. It makes you take anything written and analyze it. The great part is it even helps with any piece you are writing, to give you the ability to step back and take a good look at it without feeling like you're about to savage your baby.

    6. This is an excellent primer. Giving many skills for anyone interested in being both creative and a sound thinker. I would suggest this to nearly anyone interested in their own reasoning.

    7. A textbook for life. Maybe critical thinking is intuitive or should be, but for whatever reason it is not and this book can help train your mind to better interpret and judge our nearly insane world.

    8. It is good to read if you are a teacher and want to help your students build up their thinking skills. But to me, it is not systematic enough.

    9. This is a textbook, so it is academically focused. I found it well organized and concise, and to be a useful teaching guide.
