5.0 out of 5 stars My Favourite Book, EVER!, 17 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: English Thinking: The Three Methods (Kindle Edition)
This book changed my life.

If you take a look at my long list of reviews on Amazon you should notice that, although I've given other books five stars, this one is my favourite non-fiction book. You may also notice that I've given another book, entitled "Software for Your Brain," almost exactly the same review. The reason is that ET 123 is an updated version of Software for Your Brain. Reading through this book brings back many memories from the earlier version, but it was such a long time ago that I can't give an accurate description of the differences.

I read the free, PDF (electronic) version of Software for Your Brain about fourteen years ago and have been becoming wiser ever since.

You may think that's normal, that everyone gets wiser with age, but it's not so. Most people keep the same beliefs that they have as teenagers all the way through their lives, even if those beliefs contradict science, logic, or what most of the rest of the world believes. The biggest problem is that, even though nearly everyone believes something that isn't true, nobody believes that they're wrong.

"What, me? Wrong? Never!"

My problem now is that I hear and read nonsense everywhere, but I can't just tell people they're talking rubbish. That will only cause them to make excuses and defend themselves. The only thing I can do is say, "YOU need to read a book on critical thinking!"

If you believe that anything you know is true (I'm pretty sure that's you) you NEED to read this.

This book not only helps you to bring you down to Earth and have your head screwed on correctly, but also provides tools (Acronyms to understand and memorize) that you can use to improve your thinking.

Many years ago I spoke to my uncle about having a game of chess with him. In my young, teenage naÔvety I believed that, since I was particularly good at mathematics, and knew how to play chess, I would be a good contender. My uncle asked me a question that I will never forget, "Which books have you read on chess?" It's something that I had never even considered. I would not have stood a chance at beating my uncle in chess, since he had read books on chess and I had not. The same is true for thinking. If you have never read a book on thinking then chances are that you are not as good at thinking as those who have.
