5.0 out of 5 stars This book helps good decision-making, 25 Oct 2008
By 
This review is from: The Re-Discovery of Common Sense: A Guide To: The Lost Art of Critical Thinking (Paperback)
Have you witnessed the "dumbing down" of America? Have you seen cashiers unable to count change? Have you seen people blindly make poor choices when better ones are seemingly obvious? Jay Leno's "Jaywalking" segment on television, while entertaining, is symptomatic of a deeper problem. As evidenced by the show, we don't learn and we don't know. If you have witnessed these things don't despair - there is hope.

The root-cause of this problem may be poor decision making or in the author's words poor "critical thinking." The good news is the author takes the reader through many examples of how to make good decisions by thinking through them in a step-by-step manner. Many simple and practical examples are provided to explain these decision-making concepts clearly. These skills, once obtained, can serve as a foundation for higher level thinking later. This book is timely and is needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Educational, Engaging and Fun!, 20 July 2008
This review is from: The Re-Discovery of Common Sense: A Guide To: The Lost Art of Critical Thinking (Paperback)
My name is Chuck Clayton and I am the Author of the Re-Discovery of Common Sense. I wrote this book to help people learn great decision making skills, how to critically think about anything and to teach powerful problem solving skillls.

What kind of Decisions are You Facing Right Now?

* Should you buy that high priced car with good gas mileage?
* Should you take that new position at work?
* How do you plan a great retirement?
* What career should you pursue?
* What school should you attend?
* What home should you buy?

We continually have to make decisions in life. They are part of living. But, where do you get a "how to" guide that strips away the complexity of decision making and replaces it with an easy to understand format?

The Re-Discovery of Common Sense takes the mystery and mystique out of decision making and replaces it with a "step-by-step guide" that you will enjoy learning from. It is easy to read, understand and apply. It teaches concepts, methods and provides resources to use for making almost any decision. It also teaches how to think critically about any subject. Easy to understand explanations, real life examples, cartoons, and fascinating quotes make the book educational, engaging, and fun.

Once you have learned the powerful tools and techniques of critical thinking and decision making you will learn how these skills can be applied to real life. Practical examples teach you how to get the best deals on vacations and cars. The examples also teach you how to lower your electric bills and create a great future for yourself!

The book is geared for high school students and anyone desiring great decision making skills. You will learn the 7 steps of making great decisions, the 8 steps of doing any project and much more.

Teachers and parents will find the book especially helpful for their students and children who need that little extra nudge to think more critically and become great decision makers.

Great decisions make a great life. The Re-Discovery of Common Sense--A Guide to the Lost Art of Critical Thinking is a practical book that will teach you powerful skills for becoming successful both personally and professionally!
