  • "A decent book on Critical Thinking!" - By Pindle
    We are a product of our thoughts. What we think every moment practically shapes us and our personalities. And for that very reason, the way we think about people, situations and overall life, is extremely essential. The authors in this book give you an insight about critical thinking and how it can do wonders to you if you perceive things and situations in the right way. It further talks about how critical thinking helps in problem solving, decision making as well as logical thinking. Now is a good time to rewire your thoughts if you’ve been more of a negative thinker. After reading this book you will surely change the way you perceive things. A good read, indeed!


  • If your child likes to do workbooks (my four year old can't get enough of them) your child will like this book. I know that the grade level is 2nd or 3rd grade, but it does such a good job of breaking down and explaining concepts that much younger children can benefit from this book too.

  • "Best and most thorough logic building workbook" - By SD Mom
    As a high school teacher and mom of 7 and 9 year old girls, this is a must-have workbook. It's 368 pages of workbook including an answer key. The main reason I like this book is because it teaches critical thinking skills and logic in multiple subjects. Many workbooks I seem to find are only single subjects, but this focuses on developing and practicing thinking and logic skills in reading, writing, math and science. Additionally, each chapter breaks down the learning into a progression of critical thinking skills. For example, first starting out by describing shapes with specific descriptions, then moving to identifying similarities and differences, sequences and classifications of shapes/figures, then analogies of shapes/figures before moving into the same steps but with words and language. This workbook is the most comprehensive and holistic that I have seen. My girls enjoy it and enjoy the challenge of it. It can ... full review

  • "Critical thinking, an important skill set in my opinion- this book bring the whole process clarity-It's not cheap and not popsci" - By Hal 9000 (Detroit, MI USA)
    I rented this book for a college course- but I have read half of it before my class even began- I would consider this a must have for any library and a great tool for parents to teach their children the first set of survival skills that will pay big dividends- and those skills involve the one muscle that is the most important- the mind ( yes I know the brain/mind isn't a muscle). But in my opinion, and this is going to sound cliché, just like the fish, do not tell you children what to think but how to think. This book is not cheap, but anyone who gets this grass roots movement will reference these pages for years


  • "Fantastic resource!" - By T. Spencer (Phoenix, AZ USA)
    This is a fantastic resource to help your kids with developing their critical thinking skills. Get some attribute blocks [[ASIN:B005HYPGHG Attribute Blocks, Desktop-Sized, Set of 60]] to be able to complete some of the exercises. Kids that can't read can still do the exercises, if an adult reads the instructions to them. We've used this with our home schooled kids age 4-6. Many of the exercises help develop pre-math and pre-literacy skills (sorting, patterns, seriation, sequences, comparisons, attributes, etc.).

  • "Good for confusing concepts" - By Sara
    I don't study in these terms. This was a good book to study using case studies, though, if you were going to do it. It was helpful in thinking through how different processes can effect people in different ways. It was really helpful for some of the more complex concepts but I didn't start using it until near the end of nursing school because my teacher made me. I wish I had used it more. It is one of those things that you don't use every time for everything but as a supplement to things that really confuse you. I would recommend it, though.

  • I loved this book at first, but then there came the end...

    Likes:

    The use of logical thinking in this fantasy world was a wonderful idea. It brought about sense in the face of something you don't know.
    The enemy was also well-acquainted with the king, although it may not be for good, as Nikki suspects. She was the one who (spoiler) brought about logic and reason to prove against his word.

    Dislikes:

    The title makes it sound like a fanciful textbook. I wasn't intrigued until I started to actually read it.

    The end comes as a complete cliff hanger. It sounds like a money making scheme to get you to buy the next book.

    All in all this is a wonderful book for those with great minds and those wishing to make their minds greater.

  • "Good variety of puzzles for the beginner to figure out ..." - By Amazon Customer
    Good variety of puzzles for the beginner to figure out what kind they like. The only thing that I didn't like is that the book is broken up into sections and the answers for each section are at the end of each section instead of at the end of the book. My kid figured that out pretty quick and started peeking at the answers instead of working some of these out. I ended up cutting them out of the book. One thing I liked was that it gave instructions on how to do some of the puzzles (like logic puzzles). However, I didn't like HOW the instruction was given.

  • "The book of all ages." - By ERIC
    Great book, beautifully bound and clear pictures.

    Good for all ages to learn the ideas of fallacies from.

    A good book to teach students with!

    Recommended if you are a teacher/person who likes to collect books on mental thought!

  • I have two children, one 7 and the other 8. They both love this book. We solve the problems as a family as we finish up Sunday dinner each week. The problems are challenging while solvable. What a great way to introduce kids to problem solving, analogies and higher level thinking.

  • "This is an excellent book for introducing children to philosophical ideas and their ..." - By Karen Gann (Huntsville, AL United States)
    This is an excellent book for introducing children to philosophical ideas and their respective philosophers. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to explore serious questions about ethics, epistemology, and metaphysics (along with critical thinking) with their child(ren). I am currently using this books as a basis for a homeschool co-op class and the discussions we have are deep and "brain melting" (as my students say). I was specifically looking for something secular (there are a lot of philosophy/critical thinking books on Amazon that are Christian-based) and this fits the bill perfectly because it's neutral with regards to God and theology. The age range of our discussion group is 8 - 13. Some of the younger kids have a harder time comprehending the ideas and going deep into the discussion, but it's perfect for the 11-13 year olds in the group. They've really enjoyed it, and I've enjoyed ... full review

  • I am using Fallacy Detective with two of my children, ages 12 and 10 although occasionally my 6 and 4 year olds listen in too. The book states it is intended for ages 12 and up. My older children are not having any difficulty with this book and my younger ones understand some of it.

    There are a couple things I am doing to help the children really learn the material. They love the book and would like to cover 10 lessons a day if I would let them! First, we are taking it slow with one lesson every couple of days and in-between lesson days we continue to review the fallacies we have previously learned. Two, I have made a list with the name of the fallacy and a short, couple word reminder of the meaning of that fallacy. I have it ... full review

  • "Good Book but way to pricey !!!!" - By Sangita
    I bought this book for my 5 1/2 year old boy for some extra kick for his patterns questions. When I received it was disappointed because it has only few pages to work on. He finished very quickly. Some of the questions were defiantly challenging,he needed my help rest he was able to do it by him self. I also find some pics were confusing, you can't differentiate what they really are. For that much price written would have done a better job by provide more exercise (more questions). Over all it was good but if you do not mind to pay that much money. Do not get me wrong though I gave 4 stars because of the high price but for the material it deserves 5 star.




  • "Very good book to build logical thinking" - By Monabee (Los Angeles)
    I bought this book and the level 3 for my 12 year old son. I am impressed with how well designed and organized it is. It starts with simplest steps and helps him to build up thinking skills step by step. This book has a lot of figures and shapes in it and involves a lot of drawing geometric shapes on dotted areas that is very fun for kids to do. I am homeschooling my son for one year and I use this book every morning to warmup his brain. The instruction are very easy to follow and my ADHD son actually enjoys working on it !!
