The book's four parts, ?Be Aware,? ?Be Creative,? ?Be Critical,? and ?Communicate Your Ideas,? present students with a process for solving problems and resolving controversial issues. Discussions of how to evaluate ideas and how to question long-held assumptions or biases help students look at concepts critically.
