    I was using this as a followup to The Fallacy Detective with my high school son and the subject matter is just WAY too young! This book should be marketed as a prequel to Fallacy Detective as it covers things like the scientific method and reasoning skills that are too simple and obvious for high school age. I am actually shelving this book because it's too easy and definitely not a good followup for Fallacy detective. The subject matter would be excellent for middle school though.

    We love, love, love this book. The lessons are short and concise. The exercises at the end of the lessons are fun and help the readers to internalize the information in the lessons. When people learn to listen to others and analyze their messages, they can know how to respond appropriately, which is key to communicating. This book will help readers to listen (or read), ask questions for clarification, think about the message they've received, and respond appropriately. These skills are important not just for the listener's benefit, but for the benefit of those who share ideas with them to recognize the integrity of the message they've shared.

    Age 13+ seems too old for this book

    My 14 1/2 year old son and I read this book after completing The Fallacy Detectives by the same authors. Although this book is recommended for ages 13 through adult, we felt that it was a little childish in spots. The Fallacy Detective was also suggested for the 13 + age group, and we found that to be a more accurate recommendation. Perhaps, if The Thinking Toolbox was used prior to The Fallacy Detective, that would be better. Unit 4 of The Thinking Toolbox is all about the scientific method which I think most older students would have studied- another good reason to do this book before the other one. The Thinking Toolbox itself is a decent book. Just beware that the target age might need to be lower than 13+.

    I used this book with my high school Sophomore and we loved it. The authors are very adept (as well as humorous) teachers of basic logic. Every student should read this book!

    This book is so much fun to use. I only gave it 4 stars because it needs to be longer. The exercises are a lot of fun, and the explanations are great. We use it with a child who had a hard time determining the difference between debating and arguing. No issues there now.
