About the Book

Second Thoughts, Fourth Edition by Wanda Teays is a popular, user-friendly textbook in Critical Thinking. Its fifteen chapters address argumentation, analysis, inductive/deductive reasoning, syllogisms, fallacies of reasoning, advertising and news media, use of language, the Internet, and legal reasoning. Exercises, case studies, global examples, thought puzzles, and lively group topics help students develop their writing and thinking skills. This book works well as a classroom text or reference book for both students and faculty.

Each textbook purchase includes digital e-Book access. Please Note: the e-Book's unique digital access code is printed inside front cover of the shrink-wrapped textbook; as such, the e-Book digital access code cannot be sent separately by email in advance.
