Publisher's Summary

If you have not been yourself for a long time because of environmental influences...

If you have not been able to make your ideas prevail over time because of an invisible current in which we are submerged...

If for a long time you unconsciously follow the trends dictated by society, there is something you should know...

Our mind has a strong tendency to form beliefs to make sense of existence. Human beings cannot help but have beliefs that guide them in their thinking and their actions, but today they live in an increasingly artificial and manipulated world in which beliefs often turn out to be illusions.

Furthermore, the human mind is subjected, for evolutionary reasons, to cognitive illusions that distort our perception of the world by inducing many prejudices or errors (cognitive bias). So how can we break out of these prisons?

According to Jason Dyer, "Critical Thinking" is able to conceptualize, apply, analyze, synthesize, and actively and expertly evaluate the information gathered by a precise observation, reasoning, or experience. It also has the ability to identify, analyze, and evaluate situations, ideas and information in order to formulate responses to problems.

In Critical Thinking, all the concepts mentioned above will be explained in detail with the practical aim of improving the life of the listener, bringing his thinking to a higher level.

In this audiobook Jason will explain:

  • What critical thinking is in everyday life
  • 10 ways to learn critical thinking by countering general conformism
  • Critical thinking to develop decision-making skills
  • The 12 rules for activating intelligent thinking
  • Problem solving and critical thinking
  • Critical thinking to gain confidence and combat the social phobia of the 21st century
  • The differences between critical thinking and critical sense
  • Argument Mapping: Learning to reason with mental maps
  • And much more!

Whatever type of personality you have, whatever role you play in society, whatever situation in your life you are going through, Critical Thinking will eradicate preconceptions and prejudices instilled in your mind from adolescence to reprogram thinking and take it to a level out of the ordinary with step-by-step processes studied and put into practice over a period of several years by Jason Dyer.

We are not responsible for what we are but we are responsible for what we do, so don't procrastinate about the vital aspects of your life. Acquire strategic thoughts and become an intelligent thinker.

Insightful and helpful audio book

Every time before I make a decision, I get pieces of paper, one stating the pros and one the cons. I then make my decision. The emotional and rational thinking spoken in the book really spoke to me.

I was flabbergasted by the quality and introduction of the material in this book. In addition to the fact that I found myself prescribing it before I completed it.

A audio book to creating a mental model

I never genuinely enjoy practicing only one process to understand the situation. Still, instead I believe that using a collection of different ways to try to gain insight from a variety of perspectives.

Awful! Switched off after 20minutes

Didn't get going. Narration was extremely poor and I lost interest from the start
Avoid unless you require help with sleeping

Returning book... horrible narration

An interesting topic, but the narration is horrible. Pronunciation of some basic words and hesitations in lists was poor, as was the lack of vocal inflection in paragraph headers. I couldn't listen past chapter one! I'll be returning the audible to buy the book on Kindle instead.

Do not buy! Reviews of this book are Fake!!

The majority of the reviews for this book are not real. Something I learned within the first 5 minutes of listening to this book.

The book itself, which I listened to for over an hour to "give it a chance" is nothing but waffle and a million and one lists.

Please don't make the mistake I made and save yourself the money.

And as the other reviews that are genuine say, the other 1 star reviews, the audio version of this book is terrible. The amount of words they mispronounce and pauses at wrong places they take make this waffle even harder to listen to.

Far from engaging

I have found other books on this topic more useful. It comes across as a lecturers revision notes. Jump to Chapter 12, to save yourself time, if you choose to listen to this book. I do not recommend this at all.
