From the Publisher:

National critical acclaim for "TOOLS OF CRITICAL THINKING":

-Elizabeth F. Loftus, University of Washington

"Levy's style combines erudition with simplicity and earnestness with humor....The result is a clear and compelling book, accessible to lay persons and mental health professionals alike."
-Thomas Szasz, University of New York at Syracuse

"David Levy's lucid and good-humored guide to thinking is impressive in its scope, practical in its applications, and involving in its pedagogy."
-David G. Myers, Hope College

"David Levy has condensed both the widsom of the ages and the findings of contemporary psychological science into a manageable set of principles ("Metathoughts") that will notably improve the general quality of thought across the broad expanse of scholarly and scientific endeavor."
-Robert C. Carson, Duke University
