The books I recommend to someone who has a lot of prior exposure, or who comes at these issues from an academic background, are very different from the books I recommend to people who are coming to this for the first time. The books on this page are in the latter category. They cover a wide array of critical thinking topics related to logic, argumentation, persuasive speech, and cognitive biases, in an engaging and accessible way for a general audience, that hopefully will whet your appetite for deeper explorations of these issues. I have sometimes called these "bathroom reading recommendations", because the chapters are often short enough to be completed in a single sitting ahem. I do not disparage these kinds of books, they are some of my favorites!
