Stay alert and avoid being tricked. Apply logic and analysis to your everyday life. Detect hidden assumptions, spot inconsistencies, and recognize dishonesty.<br /><br /><br /><i>The quality of our lives is determined by the quality of our thinking. </i><br /><br />And the quality of our thinking is often determined <u>by the quality questions we ask from ourselves.</u> Critical thinking is the art of asking relevant, necessary, and meaningful questions to discover the objective truth behind words, events, and opinions in general. <br /><br />Today we have more access to information than ever before. Information influences our world view and decisions often without us noticing it. Following wrong idols can lead us to bad decisions which lead to unhappiness and a dissatisfying life. When what’s “right, beautiful, successful, and cool” gets dictated around us we often forget to think for ourselves and make our own choices. Thus we make bad decisions based on the opinion of others – not even our own. <br /><br />Who should make your life choices for you? You’ve put your own thoughts, wishes, and opinions off for too long. It’s time for that to change.<br /><br />Elements of Critical Thinking provides you with unique insights into the nature of thinking and reasoning - why are we often so wrong, why we are so inclined to avoid the responsibility of thinking for ourselves, and how can we develop solid, objective patterns of thought. <br /><br />This book is a guide for the notoriously “trusting,” “overwhelmed,” and “gullible”. It is a deep psychological dive into what makes us stop thinking for ourselves, and how to systematically combat those compulsions. It’s a book that stands apart from others because of the plethora of real-life examples, studies, and solutions. If you wish to add to your critical thinking toolkit, you’ll find the step-by-step answer in here.<br /><br /><br /><h2>Elements of Critical Thinking lays out: </h2><br />- The function of critical thinking and its main obstacles.<br />- <b>The varied elements of critical reasoning. </b><br />- Important abilities and traits of critical thinkers. <br />- <b>The vocabulary of critical analysis, </b><br />- The models essential to critical thinking.<br /><br />The most secure way of making good decisions is to have well-practiced and predictable strategies that you can use when you are faced with a problem that requires deeper analysis. <br /><br /><b>This book will provide you with helpful exercises and tips to help you can find better solutions to your problems. </b><br />- Learn the essential critical thinking skills when reading, writing, and speaking; <br />- <b>Be on your guard for hidden cognitive traps when shopping and interacting with advertisers. </b><br />– Discover the tools and strategies can help you become a more disciplined thinker, developing your analytical, reasoning, and reflective thinking skills.<br /><br /><h2>Be ready to learn. Be ready to argue intellectually. </h2><br />- Learn to read between the lines and assess the validity of statements.<br />- <b>Identify and separate logical and illogical reasoning. </b><br />- Learn how to construct a fair, well-reasoned argument with the help of formal and informal logic. <br /><br />As a physicist and computer scientist, I was always looking for logical, well-founded answers to questions. Yet, I needed to stay open to question my knowledge fairly often, revise my beliefs held, and unlearn some.<br /><br /><h2>In this book I share the best of the best critical thinkers – intertwined with my own – to help you develop this essential skill that the contemporary job market so keenly demands. I will help you create thinking patterns that lead to a critical, and more objective understanding of the world.</h2><br />

<b>This book will literally change the way you think about your next meal. </b><br /><br />Food psychologist Brian Wansink revolutionizes our awareness of how much, what, and why we’re eating—often without realizing it. His findings will astound you.<br /> <br />• Can the size of your plate really influence your appetite?<br />• Why do you eat more when you dine with friends?<br />• What “hidden persuaders” are used by restaurants and supermarkets to get us to overeat?<br />• How does music or the color of the room influence how much—and how fast—we eat?<br />• How can we “mindlessly” lose—instead of gain—up to twenty pounds in the coming year?<br /> <br />Starting today, you can make more mindful, enjoyable, and healthy choices at the dinner table, in the supermarket, at the office—wherever you satisfy your appetite.

Leading health blogger Jimmy Moore and researcher and internist Dr. Eric C. Westman join forces again to explain the powerful therapeutic effects of a ketogenic diet--one that combines a customized carbohydrate restriction, moderation of protein intake, and real food-based fats--which is emerging in the scientific literature as a means for improving a wide range of diseases, from Type 2 diabetes to Alzheimer's and more. Simply eating a low-carb diet alone isn't enough, and Moore and Westman tell you why.<br /><br /><br />Have you looked at a low-carb diet simply as a means to lose weight? What if you learned that combining a low-carb nutritional approach with a high fat intake produces a powerful therapeutic effect on a wide variety of health conditions that most people think requires medication to control? That’s what <i>Keto Clarity</i> is all about. Jimmy Moore, the world’s leading low-carb diet blogger and podcaster, has reunited with his <i>Cholesterol Clarity</i> coauthor Dr. Eric C. Westman, a practicing internist and low-carb diet researcher, to bring you the crystal-clear information you need to understand what a ketogenic diet is all about and why it may be the missing element in your pursuit of optimal health. This book includes exclusive interviews from twenty of the world’s foremost authorities from various fields bringing their depth of expertise and experience using this nutritional approach. Moore and Westman clearly explain why ketosis is normal, how this nutritional approach is being used therapeutically by many medical professionals, a step-by-step guide to help you produce more ketones and track your progress, real life success stories of people using a ketogenic diet, and more. The solid evidence for nutritional ketosis in dealing with many of the chronic health problems of our day is presented, including: epilepsy, Type 2 diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), heartburn (GERD), nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). The good evidence for ketogenic diets is also shared in dealing with Alzheimer's Disease (AD), Parkinson’s Disease, dementia, mental illness, schizophrenia, bipolar, depression, narcolepsy, and sleep disorders. Plus, you'll get the details on the emerging science that is showing great promise in treating cancer, autism, migraines, chronic pain, brain injury, stroke, kidney disease and so much more. <i>Keto Clarity</i> is your definitive guide to the benefits of a low-carb, high-fat diet. Full details on Jimmy Moore's yearlong n=1 scientific experiment of nutritional ketosis, in which he used sophisticated blood testing technology to track and monitor his production of ketones and blood sugar to achieve rather remarkable effects on his weight and health, is also presented as well as food shopping lists, 25+ low-carb, high-fat recipes, and a 21-day meal plan to get you going on your ketogenic lifestyle change. <i>Keto Clarity<i> gives you a whole new perspective on the work that the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins started in earnest with his promotion of the low-carb approach beginning in the 1960s. That revolution continues boldly in this book designed to shift your paradigm on diet and health forever!</i></i>

<p><b>The <i>New York Times </i>bestseller! More than two dozen psychiatrists and psychologists offer their consensus view that Trump's mental state presents a clear and present danger to our nation and individual well-being.</b></p><p>This is not normal.</p><p>Since the start of Donald Trump’s presidential run, one question has quietly but urgently permeated the observations of concerned citizens: What is <i>wrong</i> with him? Constrained by the American Psychiatric Association’s “Goldwater rule,” which inhibits mental health professionals from diagnosing public figures they have not personally examined, many of those qualified to answer this question have shied away from discussing the issue at all. The public has thus been left to wonder whether he is mad, bad, or both.</p><p>In THE DANGEROUS CASE OF DONALD TRUMP, twenty-seven psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health experts argue that, in Mr. Trump’s case, their moral and civic “duty to warn” America supersedes professional neutrality. They then explore Trump’s symptoms and potentially relevant diagnoses to find a complex, if also dangerously mad, man.</p><p>Philip Zimbardo and Rosemary Sword, for instance, explain Trump’s impulsivity in terms of “unbridled and extreme present hedonism.” Craig Malkin writes on pathological narcissism and politics as a lethal mix. Gail Sheehy, on a lack of trust that exceeds paranoia. Lance Dodes, on sociopathy. Robert Jay Lifton, on the “malignant normality” that can set in everyday life if psychiatrists do not speak up.</p><p>His madness is catching, too. From the trauma people have experienced under the Trump administration to the cult-like characteristics of his followers, he has created unprecedented mental health consequences across our nation and beyond.</p><p>It’s not all in our heads. It’s in his.</p><p>"There will not be a book published this fall more urgent, important, or controversial than <i>The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump</i>...profound, illuminating and discomforting" —Bill Moyers</p>
