This ebook was free when I downloaded it from Barnes and Noble.com, and I am glad I did not have to pay for it.
As other reviewers noted, there is a story about Amenah who needed heart surgery and who had to come to US for her surgery. The reader is 40% done with the book when the story ends and then more space is used at the end of the book for biographical information about the people who made this possible.
There is some good information about critical thinking which is summarized in Fig. 3.1

Short, but well done. The book starts with a story of a sick little Iranian girl brought to America for special surgery by members of the US armed forces. The story, though interesting in itself, illustrates the different thinking styles that discussed later in the book. Coupled with an online thinking style test, the book talks about different thinking style preferences and how to use them to improve your thinking. Adding tools to your cognitive toolbox.

Mmm... wasn't expecting so from a book on critical thinking as 50% of it is about the story of a little Iraqi girl saved by American soldiers during the war. Interesting the connections the authors find of this miracoulos story with theour daily life... honestly... I found kind of forced the use of this story. At times I also had the impression that the second part was a pretext to write the story of Amenah and these heroic armed forces. After all the book is dedicated to them.

I agree with a lot of the other reviews. It wasn't quite what I was expecting, and the discussion seemed a bit forced around the story. Still, an interesting way at looking at decision making processes.

This was OK. Took one story about a little girl and picked it apart. I did not feel like it had enough in it to make a critical thinking book by itself.

Interesting story (and moving), but not what I was expecting in a critical thinking book.
