Call #: 153.4 DE BONO E

Adam: 4 stars

I came away with about three good ideas from this really quick and repetitive read: that there are tools to teach and foster creativity, (and not just artistic creativity, but also idea creativity), argument and logic are not usually the best methods for generating ideas and possibilities and implementing thinking frameworks (DeBono's 6 Thinking Hats) is another more effective method, and that we can improve what we perceive by directing our perceptions rather than being pulled by them. The ideas and the information in this book are worth 5 stars but the writing is closer to 2. While DeBono justifies his boasting about his theories, experience and techniques so that the reader knows that he and his ideas are credible, and indeed they are, it does get a little tiresome at times. The concepts however make this a really useful book for both the professional and personal life.
