A little bit disappointed with product as it was in a worse shape than described by seller, so I would have paid a little less, but I will try and get new edition of this one. The book effectively clarifies what critical thinking is and how it is used in academic reading, writing and note-taking. 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. Note: I try to face my challenges head on, and so needless to say the book is aiding me in many areas. Written by internationally renowned author Stella Cottrell, this is an essential resource for students looking to refine their thinking, reading and writing skills.

Stella Cottrell's student-centred approach demystifies critical thinking and breaks down a complex subject into manageable chunks. One skill that many people today are lacking is the ability to assess situations and objectively develop solutions that can fix the issue at the same time, not to the detriment of another. The exercises are great as they underpin the knowledge and its surprising how much you take in as you work your way through each chapter. 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!The second edition of this leading guide helps students to develop reflective thinking skills, improve their critical analysis and construct arguments more effectively.

The cover may have some limited signs of wear but the pages are clean, intact and the spine remains undamaged. This book helped me immensely with my critical thinking skills, so much so I can see the benefits in other parts of my education. Beginning with the basics and building towards structured evaluations of longer texts, this book offers invaluable guidance to both students and general readers.

Stella was formerly Director of Lifelong Learning at the University of Leeds, and Pro Vice-Chancellor for Learning and Teaching at the University of East London. At whatever stage of learning you are at, Critical Thinking Skills takes the seemingly baffling art of analysis and makes it not so baffling. This book is a very excellent read that keeps your attention throughout its pages, it covers a vast amount of information on developing resolute thinking skills, and furthering ones fencing skills when having discourse. This easy to follow, step-by step guide to developing reasoning skills even applies the techniques to tasks such as reading, note-taking, and writing.

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. Moreover, the book also enables the reader to assess their own skills which can be quite useful for writing arguments and identifying the possible flaws in the same.

Proceeding beyond this level of feedback is difficult when many students don't understand what analysis is or how to integrate criticism into their work. It also contains new and updated examples that link to current affairs, showing the importance of critical thinking as a lifelong skill.In this rapidly changing information age learners to a great extent need CTS for their academics, professional career, and life itself. Good book, especially for people that are just starting university and who may need a good "tutorial" for learning a solid reading and writing method.
