Reviews

Reviews of the author's previous book Critical Thinking for Students 'When teaching for the OCR AS-level course I found this an ideal book - the right depth for teachers and the right length for students. It is written with such obvious enthusiasm for lucid and practical thinking that it can be recommended to teachers and students in any field.
