In today’s workplace, there are few simple situations and even fewer simple solutions. We are constantly dealing with an abundance of information, differing values and beliefs, our own biases and assumptions, and multiple perspectives.

This fieldbook introduces critical thinking—what it is and how to do it—and will enhance your ability to address the situations, decisions, problems, and dilemmas you face. Critical thinking works.
