In a publication on serious considering that the authors desire will produce members keen to develop into extra severe of their overview of knowledge, using entire citations might provide extra credence to their place. This acknowledged, I loved the booklet and could suggest it to novices of any self-discipline with the aspiration of turning into "critical thinkers".
