    1. ENLIGHTENING AND ENRICHING.“If you are willing to be open-minded, accept that reasonable probabilities rather than absolute certainties are the best you can get in many of the things that matter, and hold your most precious beliefs tentatively (always being willing to reconsider your beliefs and the reasons that led you to them), then there is hope that you will overcome some of the hindrances to critical thinking at least some of the time.”—Chapter 9In ‘Unnatural Acts’ Robert Carroll [...]

    2. This book is a good guide to clear thinking and how to do that better than we naturally do in our lives. I'd recommend it for a course of textbook study and to supplement classroom lectures on critical thinking. As the title implies, thinking clearly and accurately is not natural, but it is reliable and effective in allowing us to realistically fulfill our goals and otherwise make our way in an implacable world.
