You are locked in a room. You desperately want to get out. You want freedom. Your feelings are very strong. Which is the more useful, this very strong feeling or a key to the lock?

Feelings without the means to carry them out are not much good. At the same time, the key without the desire to leave the room is also not much good.

We need values, feelings amd thinking.
Feeling is no substitute for thinking.
Thinking without values is aimless.
Values and feelings are equally important but insufficient w

Good ideas presented in a simple and understandable way. The downside was the lack of references to anything other then his own work, constant sales pitches to his other books and an author who believes he is innovative and new, telling the reader that nothing new has been done in thinking since Socrates until his books. He often makes claims with no evidence to support them, mainly in regards to his achievements. Throughout the book there are random snippets of his achievements that often seem ...more

The book I can't live without this year

If I were to pick a book that I would regret not reading, it would have to be "Teach yourself to think" by Edward De Bono.

Why this book? On hindsight, this book has changed my life in many ways. It helped me discover why all the ideas that I used to have were not able to come to fruition. It gave me a practical framework that I could apply to my work.

What is the wondrous Framework?

It could be summarised in this brilliant and intuitive acronym below.

Nice book

Good book to enhance your thinking capability. You have to read several time to understand the concept in details. One thing i have noticed is that it is less motivational. We need to generate our own motivation to read the book.

Bought this for business management class.
Nothing mind-shattering here.
Donated my copy to the library

I was going to write a paper on reasoning and thinking and as i was approaching the end of it I thought it may be useful to check if there is something i may have omitted. This book turned out to be a complete waste of time and a catastrophe. There are no references, author is describing obvious, common-sense things but uses so many examples as if it was the most difficult thing to understand. A utterly horrible book

Its more like a practice book. You have to generate different examples in your mind to understand more clearly and practice the concepts. I feel it should be read more than once if you want to get benefit out of your reading.

It has a few good ideas, un-evidenced of course, but they probably would have fitted in a pamphlet or small booklet. This book is repetitive and blatantly up-selling, and there are much better resources out there.
Antti Palmén
Quite a heavy read leaving you a feeling thinking should be more complex that it is. A lot of repetition in the text, explaining same things multiple times with very little difference. A book defending itself against critics is a bit questionable too.. Still had some ok points and gave some good ideas about thinking process, but could be way lighter.

Interesting book and easy to read. Several usable methods can be found in it for everyday life too (not just for researchers). I'm giving a neutral 3* and will re-rate when I have read others in this topic.

Terribly boring and confusing. The examples given are very vague and sometimes silly. The author keeps referring to his other books, it feels like a pitch to the reader to buy those books as well. And what bugs me the most: there are no references in the book to literature about thinking...

Great read. Helpful step by step book. A little complex or scientific in his writing style. Generally understandable.

i was told that it is one of the greatest self-help books.Therefore, i am going to read it to discover what makes it that special?

Good Book to set you start thinking in a structured way.Not sure if this book teaches you how to think but it almost gives you a framework about thinking in a structured way.

So far... still enjoy the reading
