About the Author:

Vincent Ryan Ruggiero is an internationally known writer, lecturer, and consultant whose areas of special interest and expertise are critical and creative thinking, ethics, educational reform, and social criticism. A pioneer in the movement to make thinking skills instruction an important emphasis at every level of education, he holds the rank of professor emeritus, State University of New York at Delhi, and resides in Dunedin, Florida. Professor Ruggiero's 22 books include Beyond Feelings: A Guide to Critical Thinking, Thinking Critically about Ethical Issues, The Art of Thinking, Teaching Thinking across the Curriculum, A Guide to Thinking Sociologically, Warning: Nonsense Is Destroying America, Making Your Mind Matter, The Practice of Loving Kindness, and Corrupted Culture.

Review:

"It is an excellent text for teaching a combination of writing skills and critical thinking skills to students. The material is very interesting and elicits discussion."

"It's just the right length. It makes the ideas clear to the readers without pulling in a lot of extraneous detail. The book makes its concepts clear using examples that are very easy to relate to. It also simplifies many of the harder concepts of critical thinking, like fallacies and what it means to be a critical thinker."
