Details about Smart Thinking: Skills for Critical Understanding and Writing
This second edition treats reasoning as an aspect of communication, not an abstract exercise in logic. It not only provides detailed advice on how to practice better analytical skills, but also demonstrates their application to finding information and writing more coherently. The focus in this book is on improving one’s own reasoning rather than simply reading others’ arguments. In particular, Smart Thinking emphasises how to develop arguments that are coherent and take account of their audience and context.
