The full title of this book by Christ Lewis is
“Critical Thinking: 50 Best Strategies to Think Smart and Clear, Get Logical Thinking, and Improve Your Decision Making Skills“.
In my review posted to Amazon.co.uk, I gave the book Four Stars. This means I think it is Good and Well Worth Reading.
Here is my book review.
Very useful guide on the important topic of thinking more clearly
I believe we live in a world where too many of us, too often, don’t think deeply enough. Instead we opt for the easy option which means we are left believing the wrong things and making the wrong decisions.
It’s not necessarily our own fault because we humans are designed to do much of our thinking below the awareness level but it does create problems and we can do something about it.
This is a very practical and comprehensive guide to help you to become a better thinker.
I thought it was well written and easy to read. I’m surprised at another review dismissing this book as “Absolute Twaddle!” I’m normally sensitive to particularly bad writing but I had no problems with this book at all. Perhaps it’s just that I’m used to reading words written as we talk rather than more formal English.
Who is right? Well the reviews at the Amazon.com website are also generally positive.
Minor criticisms include:
1) the 50 strategies aren’t numbered on my kindle download. Silly but at the same time irritating.
2) 50 is a lot of different strategies. I don’t get the feeling that there is any particular reason for the ordering of the points and I’d have liked to have seen some prioritisation, either by the author or through some form of questionnaire that guided you towards the mistakes that you most commonly make.
3) I think it would be useful to have some form of checklist at the back to let you try the different strategies and tick them off a few times so that they become a more regular part of the way you operate.
I’m being harsh. While I don’t think it’s the definitive guide to thinking that I want to refer my to small business clients (because of overwhelm), I believe that it’s very useful to read whether you’re young or, shall we say, more mature.Business Books Reviews by Paul Simister (Please click).
