Smart Thinking is a practical, step-by-step guide to improving skills in analysis, critical thinking, and the effective communication of arguments and explanations. It combines an accessible and straightforward style, with a strong foundation of knowledge. The book treats reasoning as an aspect of communication, not an abstract exercise in logic. It not only provides detailed advice on how to practice better analytical skills, but also demonstrates how these skills can be used in research and writing. In particular, Smart Thinking emphasises how to develop arguments that are coherent and that take account of their audience and context.
