Harrison is the author of five highly acclaimed books on critical thinking, including his latest work Think: Why You Should Question Everything. In his new book, the author demonstrates how everyone can reason like a scientist, embrace the skeptical life, and improve their critical thinking skills. Harrison shows you how to better navigate through the maze of biases and traps that are standard features of every human brain by helping you trim away the nonsense, deflect bad ideas, and keep both feet firmly planted in reality.
