We need a survival guide for thinking because we're bad at it

I liked this segment from the CBC program Spark, an interview with Alan Jacobs of Baylor University.  It was about how to think, now to think effectively.  One of the things that struck me was what he said about how Trump deflects attention from important issues and news by his tweeting.  He suggested that when Trump does that to distract from important things we don't repeat his tweets. 

It's a good interview with practical advice, the kind of stuff the next cog-sci-neuro-sci guy they have on NPR probably won't give you.

I won't  suggest it to my detractors, at almost 28 minutes, they don't have the attention span for it.
