This book demonstrates how clear thinking, or critical thinking, works and why it is important, using the stories of a teacher, Wilhelm von Osten, who thought he could teach the horse Clever Hans to perform mathematical calculations and understand multiple languages, and Douglas Biklen, who tried to help children and adults with communication difficulties, based on his belief in facilitated communication. The stories illustrate how people believe in things that cannot be true and how critical thinking can bring them to realize their error. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
