First, I'd recommend avoiding "Critical Reasoning" texts like the plague. They teach baby logic, and I don't know of one that's worth the paper it's printed on. If you want to reason like an adult, then read a book the subject of which is the way adults reason.
I'd recommend Irving Copi's intro to logic. His informal logic is also supposed to be very good, but I'm not familiar with it.
I'd also recommend Benson Mate's Elementary Logic.
Ted Sider's Logic for Philosophy is excellent. That's where I'd start, but if you don't have any formal training in logic, it ought to be read in tandem with an introductory text to logic to supplement the parts you don't understand.
