Not that good thinking

Good Thinking: What You Need to Know to be Smarter, Safer, Wealthier, and Wiser - Guy P. Harrison

It is disappointing in two fronts. 


One, it is too basic. So, if you have read anything about logic or critical thinking, it is not really that suitable, as it is too simple.

Secondly, I heard him on podcast and while he is not trusting any alternative medicine, aka fake medical cure, he trust that out of all these sites, there must be some that work.


What is the logic in that? It is the same as a lot of people is digging in shit to find diamonds, there might not be any diamond in shit. To say there might be, because so many people are digging in shit, is illogical. That's kind of said a lot about the writer limitation in logic.

So skip this one.
