How to think

  • Sep 14, 2009
This is the book I thought I had in hand when I read Greg Craven's What's the Worst That Could Happen?: A Rational Response to the Climate Change Debate a couple of weeks ago. But after five good chapters laying out tools and methods for rational decision making (how to think), Craven turned his book into a polemic on the specific topic of global warming (what to think).

Watanabe sticks to the topic of teaching how to solve problems and make decisions with rational thought processes, and provides multiple examples, making this the better book, and the one better suited to teaching young minds this valuable skill. Watanabee provides straight-forward thinking tools with simple graphics to illustrate how to use the tool. There's no fluff, just the important stuff.

Adults can also benefit by these reminders of clear thinking tools and methods, and the book can easily be read in an hour or so.
