Book Description

THINKING CRITICALLY is a developed skill if you want to improve the quality of your life. Rather than being subject to “one-liners” and “fake news” in today’s environment, you can give yourself not only a broader prospective but reduce your stress in reacting to challenging comments. This book, THINKING CRITICALLY, has a series of thoughtful practical scenarios for you to reflect upon. You decide for yourself and in doing so build up your self-confidence.

Sample Chapter



Do not try to control anyone except yourself

If you give up dominating others

You learn to respect each person


When you manage yourself

Your desires will be more moderate

And you will learn humility


Learn to identify options for solving problems

What info do I need? Which is best? And why?

Remember worry is negative while action is positive


Learn to be a citizen of the world

Study problems and solutions

From other cultures’ perspectives


Study what is news and entertainment

News is history and economics

While entertainment is sex and violence


Understand the difference between sex and love

Between freedom fighters and terrorists

Between collateral damage and the killing of innocents


Know the difference between faith and facts

And between believe and can

Know the five most important goals of your friend


Who do you blame for the failures in your life?

Ex-spouse, lover, parents, siblings?

Ex-bosses, co-workers? friends? Or yourself?


Do not be ethnocentric, intolerant, arrogant, biased

Do read, listen, help others, reflect, evolve

Jerome Dirnberger

After high school I entered the Society of Jesus during which my major courses of studies were Philosophy and Religion. In a few years I left the Jesuits and finished my studies in Comparative Religions at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Colorado. While my career was in business, I continued to be interested in first century Christianity. A few years ago I became more involved with the Tao Te Ching. Because of all the various translations and interpretations, I did not find one satisfactory. So I wrote and published my own.
