Here is a little insight into the book taken from the back cover:
 
“In the contemporary information jungle, people no longer appear to strive for believability. Verification of facts simply means using a computer search engine. All around us, people draw unsubstantiated conclusions about things without even realizing the weak foundations for their belief systems.

With this modern phenomenon in mind, JJ Botta presents an innovative system of rational thought known as THINK. It is clearly not intended to be a philosophy course, or even an exhaustive consideration of the subject matter. It does, however, present an easy three-step method of enhancing human lives by instilling readers with a sense of confidence in the veracity of the conclusions they reach daily and in their ability to question the often unsound reasoning of those with whom they interact regularly.
 
The author has taken the complicated philosophical concept of critical thinking and culled three simple areas through which anyone might learn to improve his or her reasoning abilities. It is no secret that human beings live happier lives when they appear credible to the outside world. This book helps people to achieve that goal through THINK.”
 
This book is my thirteenth of fourteen publications in the field of Humanities. It is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and most bookstores worldwide who purchase through the Ingram Book Company, or immediately through my
Author Spotlight website.
