thinking, and other Humanities courses at several universities, I finally published my latest book

Here is a little insight into the book taken from the back
“In the contemporary information jungle, people no longer
appear to strive for believability. Verification of facts simply means using a
computer search engine. All around us, people draw unsubstantiated conclusions
about things without even realizing the weak foundations for their belief
With this modern phenomenon in mind, JJ Botta presents an
innovative system of rational thought known as THINK.It is clearly not intended to be a philosophy
course, or even an exhaustive consideration of the subject matter. It does,
however, present an easy three-step method of enhancing human lives by
instilling readers with a sense of confidence in the veracity of the conclusions
they reach daily and in their ability to question the often unsound reasoning
of those with whom they interact regularly.
The author has taken the complicated philosophical concept
of critical thinking and culled three simple areas through which anyone might
learn to improve his or her reasoning abilities. It is no secret that human
beings live happier lives when they appear credible to the outside world. This
book helps people to achieve that goal through THINK.”
This book is my thirteenth publication in the field of
Humanities, and I sure hope it is lucky thirteen. It will be available at
Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and most bookstores worldwide who purchase through
the Ingram Book Company within the next six weeks, or immediately through my Author Spotlight website.
