Polya is a mathematician who wrote this book for math teachers. He discusses techniques for solving problems and for teaching others to solve problems. Most of his examples are from geometry and algebra, but the same techniques can be applied to non-mathematical problems. I found it useful to review explicitly these skills that I've been using instinctively since I learned them in school.
