"Thinking is the most fun you can have on your own, but we all do it differently. This book is an entertaining guide down the rabbit hole so that we can find out how we think about thinking and what we think about it. There is no doubt that this will help us understand not only ourselves but others too."
"A very engaging book that gives a comprehensive overview of the topics in thinking. I like in particular the theory centred approach endorsed, and that the authors show how arguments shape theories and how theories develop and progress over time."
I think it is a good supportive text for 2 of my modules looking at decision making in professional practice. I like the exercises included at the beginning of each chapter and plan to use some of these as seminar discussion starters. Good book.
This book is eminently readable and informative on a topic that is relevant but not central to my course. It will be placed on the recommended reading list. Students will find it useful and fitting as part of their wider reading.
Interesting and well written.
