This is a 2-book combo, which has the following titles:
Book 1: Many people don’t understand what critical thinking is. Moreover, not all the ones that do, apply it in their daily lives. Politics, the media, and so many other aspects of society show how small the number is of people who use their brains.
Critical thinking means, among others, that you look at multiple sides of a controversial topic, that you can stay objective and put away your biases until you have reached a firm conclusion based on verifiable facts. This skill is highly valuable in job interviews, relationships, and everyday life.
In order to improve your critical thinking skills, it would be best to adopt the best practices that help you accomplish this task. In other words, some things help you develop this skill, others are a waste of time and effort, or even worse, go against it and cause a degeneration of your intellect and open-minded attitude.
Book 2: What is a fallacy? Many people may have heard the word before but don’t grasp the magnitude of it. They erroneously assume that they aren’t guilty of embracing half-truths or false conclusions. And yet, those are often the ones who do it the most.
In this guide, you will receive greater comprehension of what fallacies are and close your blind spot to the truth of things.
Later, the author goes on to instruct you on inductive and deductive reasoning, which are two techniques that help people reach logical conclusions without going astray in their paths of thinking.
Last but not least, a long chapter is devoted to developing moral character, our conscience, and our ethics. Everything can be justified, but to live with our conscience is an art by itself.
