Critical Thinking for Psychology addresses one of the hottest topics in contemporary psychology, that of the importance of robust critical thinking as a skill necessary for underpinning scientific endeavour. Engaging, relevant and refreshingly waffle–free, Forshaw s focus on polite scepticism encourages the reader to take the critic out of critical thinking and offers credible and practical advice on how best to develop and apply creative and common–sense critical thought to literature evaluation, essay writing and making the most of feedback.
Nikki Newhouse, Editor of PsychTalk Magazine
