Critical Thinking Junkie: How to Develop Critical Thinking is written by Howie Junkie. What exactly is critical thinking, and how do you know if you possess it? If you find negotiating for what you want difficult and find that your views can be swayed easily, then this book is definitely for you. Are you always drawn into other people’s arguments and want to improve your decision-making skills? As a child, your critical thinking skills are superb, but as we all get older, our environment gradually diminishes the creative part of our brains and, instead, we apply logic, not creativity. This book, however, will arm your critical thinking toolkit with techniques that you can apply to your everyday life. You will also become aware of the subconscious thought processes that are holding you back and learn the skills to change.
Critical Thinking Junkie by Howie Junkie may be concise but it is filled with practical and useful techniques to change the way you think and behave in negotiating and decision-making situations. I believe anyone who reads this book will be enlightened and amazed to discover why they make certain decisions, and why they are not always in your best interests. The tips at the end of each section show valuable methods that anyone can implement. I especially loved the critical thinking activities which were explained in terms that I could understand. They can be implemented easily and quickly whenever I am trying to make an important decision or feel I am being coerced. This would make a great teaching tool for schools and the workplace as I feel it will definitely bring confidence and harmony to the people that put these techniques into action.
