      —Stephen Beck, The Evergreen State College

"The only unfortunate thing about this book is that, when I greatly needed a text to introduce a particularly anxious class of students to critical thinking, David Morrow had not yet written it! Giving Reasons simplifies the intimidating terms students most fear, provides engaging exercises, and uses modern examples that are both rigorous and relevant. The words 'extremely short' should also get (and keep) the attention of those hard-to-reach Millenials."
      —Heather Rainey, Florida State College at Jacksonville

"David Morrow has returned to Aristotle's concept of rhetoric in this book. If you want students to understand the intricacies of finely crafted arguments, you can't do better than this."
      —John Strauch, Illinois Central College

"David Morrow very succinctly and lucidly conveys a plethora of concepts conducive to student success not only in the study of logic, but more generally."
      —Joshua Lott, Western Connecticut State University
