Asking the Right Questions: A Guide to Critical Thinking - a very popular book that helps readers understand the difference between blindly accepting information and critical analysis and synthesis, teaching how to react rationally to alternate points of view and develop a foundation for making personal choices about what to accept and what to reject in what we see and hear. An extremely helpful book for clarifying thought - for even the most educated people!
