This book is a very valuable and rich resource to enable social work students in training to develop effective critical thinking skills and habits. It has excellent content and practice relevant exercises with which to encourage students to develop their critical thinking further both in their academic studies and professional practice.
-- Jasper Shotts

As the authors of this book suggest, critical thinking is a 'sought after' skill in social work practice, yet is something that can be difficult for students to conceptualise. This practical text is written in such a way, that it aims to speak directly to student social workers to help them understand the concept, and application of, critical thinking. A range of models are clearly set out by the authors for students to follow, including helpful themes such as 'danger points' which alert students to some of the pitfalls in certain models of thinking.

I therefore recommend this book be used by student social workers throughout their social work degrees to help them develop and master their skills.

-- Lesley Deacon
What I like about the book is that it covers the core skills of critical thinking, critical writing and critical reflection. Although it is written at a basic level and does not go into much detail in this complex subject area, it does however provide sufficient material to grasp the fundamental concept of 'criticality' when applied to a range of social work activities. -- Graham Ixer. Professor of Social Work and Social Policy
This book provides highly practical suggestions for record keeping and report writing, the good practice of which frequently slips from attention and is fraught with pitfalls. Overall, this is an excellent book which is memorable for its fusion of concepts with sheer practicality, no jargon, no acronyms, just clear language and sharp analysis. -- Isabel Martin, Independent Practice Teacher, Argyll and Bute, Scotland
