Description

The world is full of problems and conflicts. So why can't we solve them? According to Edward de Bono, world thinking cannot solve world problems because world thinking is itself the problem. And this is getting worse: we are so accustomed to readily available information online that we search immediately for the answers rather than thinking about them. Our minds function like trying to drive a car using only one wheel. There's nothing wrong with that one wheel - conventional thinking - but we could all get a lot further if we used all four... De Bono examines why we think the way we do from a historical perspective and uses some of his famous thinking techniques combined with new ideas to show us how to change the way we think. If we strengthen our ability and raise our thinking level, other areas of our life - both personal and business success - will improve.

Professional reviews

"This 2010 book summarizes the author's groundbreaking work on expanding the quality and reach of our thinking. He provides tools that go beyond Aristotelian logic, thinking tools that show how to improve processes like creativity, argument, criticism, education, and using media. In this fresh-sounding production, Nicholas Bell's warm and enthusiastic performance tempers the mechanistic quality of much of the material and makes the author's self-referencing tendencies sound endearing. Whether he's reading a technical point or an example of de Bono's big-picture thinking, Bell makes it all sound inviting with his appealing Australian accent and authentic engagement with his audience.
