Critical thinking for individuals

Critical thinking is the most important skill set of the 21st century. To think critically, individuals must practice their ability to think clearly and rationally, understanding the logical connection between ideas.

Some of the world’s most influential ideas and powerful arguments are to be found in some of the best-known books ever written. However, to read and digest even a fraction of them is time-consuming and painstaking.
