    Reviews & endorsements

    "The editors have done a wonderful job of organizing the chapters within seven topic areas and have even included a list of suggested chapters should the handbook be used as a textbook. The intended readers are experts in the field, academics, and graduate and undergraduate students. Highly recommended."
    --Library Journal

    "The Cambridge Handbook of Thinking and Reasoning is a well-written and structured book that provides thorough reviews in all the main thinking and reasoning-related areas of research. The reviews not only summarize what is known on a given topic but also describe potential areas for future research. In addition, the chapters are of average length and are very well-referenced. The result is a handbook that can be used in a variety of ways for instruction at the graduate and undergraduate levels and that provides an excellent resource for researchers."
    --Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books
