Great Intro into Critical Thinking (Beware...This Book Will Challenge You)!  Dec 5, 2008
This book serves as an excellent foray into critical thinking. The author challenges us to assess and confront our beliefs. He uses examples from everyday life which makes it a very enjoyable and entertaining read. For me personally, reading this book forced me to examine some of my own silly, pseudoscientific beliefs (which I was hanging onto by a thread) and finally let them go. It also served as my introduction into scientific skepticism. For that, I will always be grateful to the author.

Send a copy to the person in your life who is sure he/she has bad luck or who insists that their dream was a precognition. But don't forget to read it yourself, you will most likely find yourself questioning some of your own beliefs as well - and what's more fun and exciting than that?!?
You need to read this book!  Dec 2, 2008
Kida has written a wonderful handbook for becoming a better critical thinker. In an enjoyable and easy-to-understand style, he summarizes the major judgment fallacies that ALL are influenced by. I consider myself to be a reasonably skeptical person so I was shocked as I discovered that many of my own decision processes were susceptible to Kida's judgment fallacies.

This book will definitely change the way you think!
Interesting topic, boring book  Nov 27, 2008
I were expecting much more from this book. It is very basic and repetitive. Probably the author can make a 20 pages summery without missing any important concept.

(later)... I take a breath and finish it, and have to recognise the last part of the book is better, so add some 30 more pages to the summery
Okay presentation of material - not the best  Apr 29, 2008
I think this book does a decent job organizing and giving example for categories of "mistakes in thinking." I have not test-driven it with one of my social psychology or cognitive psychology classes to see what our students think of it and how much they absorb from it (more important from my point of view).

As a clinician, I was unimpressed with misinformed comments on the Rorschach and other projective tests. These days very few clinicians assume thematic face validity of people's responses to Rorschach card (i.e., seeing buttocks, female clothing, and indeterminate gender in ink blots means homosexual - p. 124). This sounds like a hold over from the days when homosexuality was a disorder listed in the DSM (approx. 1973).

If people would like to run the Rorschach through its paces, they need to critique the Exner system of scoring responses rather than the presumption that the administrating clinician believe they can magically "read" and interpret someone's subconscious from their responses. I'm all for skepticism and sturdy criticism, but do it well and be informed.

FYI - no clinician worth their salt utilizes any test in isolation or out of context, even tests that are well regarded as psychometrically sound.
A way to rethink your thinking  Apr 28, 2008
I was looking for something to stir my thought process as lately we've been bombarded with a variety of viewpoints from a variety of sources (TV newspapers, blogs, etc etc etc).

It was a good reminder on how to analyze information - without jumping to conclusions based on minimal evidence. I've found myself falling into that same trap a few times and being given viewpoints based on someone's personal experience or sound bites on television. We're constantly bombarded with snippets of information and "psuedo" science T.V. where only one side is presented or the entire background information is conveniently ignored.

I've yet to complete the book, but thus far I've found it interesting and educating. Worth a read to remind oneself of traps we easily fall into when digesting information from our various sources.
