Written by two of the most prominent leaders in the International Critical Thinking movement, Richard Paul and Linda Elder, this is the text that will give students the tools they need to achieve deep and significant learning in all disciplines and subjects, as well as in life. It is also a useful book for anyone interested in developing as thinker.

Critical Thinking: Tools for Taking Charge of Your Learning and Your Life provides a holistic theme, approaching critical thinking as a process for taking charge of and responsibility for one's thinking. Designed to foster the development of critical thinking skills and abilities, fairmindedness, intellectual humility, and intellectual integrity, the approach is an eminently practical one. Numerous meaningful, yet common examples coupled with related activities allow the reader to examine and chronicle his/her own understanding and growth, providing the foundation for the lifelong application of critical thinking skills.
