"This is one of the most interesting critical thinking textbooks I have come across in a while. You cannot find a more currently relevant book of its kind."--Manuel P. Arriga, California State University San Marcos
"The political elections of 2016 certainly incited more interest in the media. While some students recognize/recognized 'fake news,' others did not. Just as the author suggests, it is imperative that we, as faculty, emphasize teaching students how to think, not what to think."--J. Dana Trent, Wake Tech Community College
"By including the elements that incorporate actual bits of media that students experience every day, Applying Critical Thinking to Modern Media makes clear to them that this is something that is deeply relevant to their lives. The text's primary strengths are its clarity, timeliness, and practicality."--Karl Stocker, Eastern Connecticut State University
"This is a text with the potential to be a game changer. If modern media is taught properly, as it is here, instructors can reshape the cognitive process for students who are inclined to evaluate and synthesize information on a limited scale, without in-depth analysis."--Jeff Vogel, Saddleback College
