A curious book as the authors explore the roots of genius. The 13 tools in the subtitle are observing, imaging, abstracting, recognizing patterns, forming patterns, analogizing, "body thinking," empathizing, dimensional thinking, modeling, playing, transforming, and synthesizing. The book is a heavy read telling the stories of important creative and innovative people. I found some of the 13 tools active in myself but noticed the absence of others perhaps that is the strength of the book's analysis is that these 13 thinking tools can be learned.
