From alcohol and drug addiction to rage on national highways and in airports, many human beings have kept themselves in perpetual turmoil and despair. From encroachment on individual rights and liberties to wars of attrition and mass genocide, human history has continually repeated itself due to a failure to see the light. Containing numerous skill-building exercises, Critical Thinking Unleashed seeks to cultivate the reasoning skills required to overcome such destructive human tendencies and to live meaningful and productive lives in a democratic society. In contrast to other treatments of practical reasoning, Elliot D. Cohen not only teaches students how to identify and refute irrational premises_he also teaches them how to construct rational antidotes to combat the personal, social, and political obstacles they confront in everyday life. Moreover, Cohen encourages students to use the theories and ideas embodied in the history of philosophy in order to construct these rational guides, drawing examples from many contemporary sources. Demonstrating the practical relevance and import of many historically significant philosophers (e.g. Socrates, Aristotle, Epictetus, Hume, Kant, Mill, Sartre, and Nietzsche), the book presents a practical, non-technical, and comprehensive approach to critical thinking.

Although there are a number of good books on the market that address the topic of emotional abuse, My Path from Doormat to Dignity is unique. It is a personal and passionate story, born of pain, written by a recovering doormat (me) that learned her lessons the hard way. Using in-depth biblical analysis and personal journal entries, this book chronicles how, one by one, I unmasked the lies that fed my passivity and uncovered the truths that set me free. Dignity is distinguished from pride, discernment from judgement, and forgiveness from reconciliation. Numerous biblical examples regarding how to be appropriately assertive are cited: Jesus, Paul, and Job in particular. Personal illustrations expose the red flags of emotional abuse, and the do's and don'ts of appropriate confrontation are addressed. Quotes from CS Lewis, Jane Austen, popular movies, and TV talk shows add relevancy, color, and depth. I write with the sincerest hope of coming alongside a fellow sufferer: someone who feels overwhelming fear and false guilt at the prospect of being assertive.
