Why the Analysis of Thinking is Important Everyone thinks; it is our nature to do so. Take time to state your purpose clearly. Distinguish your purpose from related purposes. Check periodically to be sure you are still on target. Choose significant and realistic purposes. State the question at issue clearly and precisely. Express the question in several ways to clarify its meaning.
Break the question into sub-questions. Distinguish questions that have definitive answers from those that are a matter of opinion or that require multiple viewpoints. Restrict your claims to those supported by the data you have. Search for information that opposes your position as well as information that supports it. Make sure that all information used is clear, accurate and relevant.
Make sure you have gathered sufficient information. Infer only what the evidence implies. Check inferences for their consistency with each other.

Yet the cost of these books never goes down, because students are a captive market.
Our First Stretch Goal:
So, I gathered a team of writers, editors, and designers, and together we created our own textbook, so that my students don't have to buy one. The production process was was funded by the more than backers who pleged a little bit of money each through Kickstarter , an online crowd-sourcing fundraising platform. You get all the previous rewards, and your choice of any of my other previous books. And I'll sign it for you! I'll send you all the above, and in case you haven't got enough stuff to read I'll also send you a printed copy of my doctoral thesis, "Time and the Land: This text is not published anywhere, and you can't download it from an archive, so it's a very limited edition.
