    “What do earth, fire, air, and water have to do with effective thinking? Everything, according to mathematics professors Edward B. Burger and Michael Starbird. In The 5 Elements of Effective Thinking, the authors draw on these metaphor-laden elements from the natural world to demonstrate how to ask better questions, take calculated risks, learn from mistakes, and, ultimately, transform ourselves into more engaged and thoughtful citizens of the world. . . . The 5 Elements of Effective Thinking is a useful guide for anyone interested in tackling difficult subject matter, particularly in the classroom. The book also could serve as a solid supplementary text in courses on critical thinking.”Jennifer Moore, ForeWord Reviews

     

    “If you remember being told by your teachers to think harder and having no idea how, The 5 Elements of Effective Thinking should help. . . . This is a snappy, illuminating read that should appeal to anyone who has ever dreamed of being a genius and is willing to strive, step by step, to become one.”David Wilson, South China Morning Post

     

    “Thinking is good, enthuses this book by two distinguished teachers of mathematics. You might think you’re being creative or having intuitions or conducting a romance or whatever, but it’s all thinking, right? And you can learn to think better! So you can, and the advice herein, which includes many practical tenets of ‘critical thinking’, will surely be useful to many a schoolchild or business leader.”Steven Poole, Guardian

We now have a guide for people of all ages to learn how to think more effectively. I highly recommend this book.”Jack Canfield, cocreator of the New York Times best-selling Chicken Soup for the Soul® series and The Success Principles

    Rationality: What It Is, Why It Seems Scarce, Why It Matters

    Steven Pinker

     

    • TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR 2021

     

     Steven Pinker is among the best science writers in history, and with Rationality he applies his talents to one of the most important and misunderstood human abilities – tracking reality with a brain that was designed to do so under some circumstances but not others. If you’ve ever considered taking drugs to make yourself smarter, read Rationality instead. It’s cheaper, more entertaining, and more effective. Jonathan Haidt, NYU-Stern School of Business and author of The Righteous Mind 

     

    In the twenty-first century, humanity is reaching new heights of scientific understanding – and at the same time appears to be losing its mind. How can a species that discovered vaccines for Covid-19 in less than a year produce so much fake news, quack cures and conspiracy theorizing?

     

    In Rationality, Pinker rejects the cynical cliché that humans are simply an irrational species – cavemen out of time fatally cursed with biases, fallacies and illusions. After all, we discovered the laws of nature, lengthened and enriched our lives and set the benchmarks for rationality itself. Instead, he explains, we think in ways that suit the low-tech contexts in which we spend most of our lives, but fail to take advantage of the powerful tools of reasoning we have built up over millennia: logic, critical thinking, probability, causal inference, and decision-making under uncertainty. These tools are not a standard part of our educational curricula, and have never been presented clearly and entertainingly in a single book – until now.

     

    Rationality matters. It leads to better choices in our lives and in the public sphere, and is the ultimate driver of social justice and moral progress. Brimming with insight and humour, Rationality will enlighten, inspire and empower.
