To me, the crux of this book might be summed up in an epigram that appears in the book. I don't remember it exactly, but the basic premise is that logic can dig a very deep hole--but you won't strike water until you use lateral thinking to decide where to PUT the hole. It reminds me of my experiences with school systems that encourage rote learning.

When I first went to such a school, I was extremely impressed by how quickly and thoroughly most of the students were able to memorize things. I've To me, the crux of this book might be summed up in an epigram that appears in the book. I've always memorized laboriously, and retained little. I continued being impressed until I brought a problem to some of them.

Further questioning revealed that they had memorized the formulae, and could apply them without difficulty--but they couldn't understand what the formulae MEANT, or how they were arrived at, or could be changed. Make mistakes. Get messy. Useful, but you could develop your own--and probably should.

It is so boring I fell asleep reading it when I wasn't even tired. I know improving your lateral thinking skills requires Firstly, putting my status as finished is a fib, because I only got half way through before I had to abandon this book.

I know improving your lateral thinking skills requires more effort than solving a few puzzles, but this book fails to engage or inspire you on this quest. I would have given it 1 star, but as I only read half way, I gave it the benefit of the doubt that it would improve. A shame, because I really would like to improve my lateral thinking skills, but this is not the book for me. View 1 comment.

Dec 14, Howard Y rated it it was ok Shelves: unfinished. Only read this if you want to verbalise De Bono congratulatorily masturbating to himself. Oct 22, Eric added it. I've always wanted to improve my lateral thinking skills. I guess some childish part of me was hoping for instant gratification, read this book and bing!

Of course not.

Letra Weird Thought Thinker Joshua Hedley De Cancion

It's something you need to work on everyday, even for 5 minutes a day add that to the list of things you should be doing everyday even for five minutes, stretching, meditating, napping, etc. I guess the book was OK, got a little bored wading through the exercises [these are suggestions for a tacher, I've always wanted to improve my lateral thinking skills.

I guess the book was OK, got a little bored wading through the exercises [these are suggestions for a tacher, and not quite optimised for solo work, though you could probably work that out for yourself]. The chapter on the word 'Po' infuriated me, I must add. Artificialness of it grated very strongly my nerves, so much so that I wanted to toss the book library book! But then he follows up with a very nice chapter on being 'blocked by openness' Notes to future eric: difference between vertical logical and lateral thinking like difference between depth first and breadth first search?

You need both. Self-reinforcing patterns and laziness vertical are good! You can sit around disrupting all day, otherwise you never get things done It's not about right or wrong, just about different, generating alternatives. Use vertical thinking later to sift through the crap.

Stop religious brain washing and religious misinterpretation with human rationality )

Suspending judgment. Hang on to the blocked-by-openness thing.

Creative people’s brains really do work differently

Argh, now I'm frustrated. I wish I could attend a lateral thinking class, or read something not written by De Bono and not something fluffy-markety either Interesting book, offering some processes to generate ideas and solve problems. The author argues that ideas should not be discarded, no matter how ridiculous they seem. Even the most outrageous ideas can provide insights about a problem. It's not important to be right all along the problem solving process, it's only Interesting book, offering some processes to generate ideas and solve problems.

It's not important to be right all along the problem solving process, it's only important to be right at the end. Oct 27, Manikandan T S rated it really liked it Shelves: psychology , self-help , favorites. Everyone is born creative.

The Greatest Minds of All Time

Creativity can't be learned, but it involves unlearning some of the approaches we learned as part of education. This book explains the process which helps in improving creativity. This is must read for professionals who solves many technical problems day to day and also for college students to have a successful career. Lateral thinking is an alternative way of thinking that leaves some room for incorrect ideas to surface without being judged or shut down before their time.

We tend to think in a structured way in order to find the correct path towards the answer. But with lateral thinking, the purpose is finding something interesting and eventually getting to an answer regardless of the path we took to get there. The book is good at explaining what vertical and lateral thinking are and how they differ from each other, and it provides some techniques to facilitate lateral thinking along with practices to actually try out those techniques.

I loved the analogies the author made to explain the concept of lateral and vertical thinking, it simplified how the brain processes information and the possible limitations it entails. I also appreciated some of the techniques presented to practice lateral thinking, even though some of them are common sense and we just need to be conscious of them when needed. The other MAJOR disappointment and the main reason this book got a 2 was the amount of redundant information. Key Takeaways: 1. The way the mind works is by trying to fit pieces of information into an already known pattern thus the order in which you receive information matters and shifts your way of thinking.

Vertical thinking is focused on what is correct and the best while avoiding making mistakes. Lateral thinking suspends judgment and generative. Acknowledging dominant ideas and their boundaries helps in loosening things up and going in a different direction. When dealing with concepts and rules reverse and reorder the information to challenge the preconception.

The usefulness of generated ideas from brainstorming can be immediate solution , generate new ideas, or for reframing the problem. Our perception can be polar black. The basis of Edward De bonos theory of thinking 'lateral' or in essense, more broadly. This was one of the first of Edward De bono's books that I read. Great read.

In his efforts to explain complex theorys, he uses insightful abstract comparisons that his theorys have with tangible objects. Love it. Being creative is a process, seeing through different lenses and different ways of using information. Also most importantly practice. Good one.

This book starts with a dilemma faced by a pretty merchant's daughter confronted by her father's nasty creditor. The creditor says he will settle the issue with a game of chance. Where they stand are white and black stones.

The Greatest Minds of All Time

A white stone means the debt is settled, a black stone means the debt is settled but she must marry the money-lender. Our heroine notices that the money lender puts two black stones in the bag. So whatever she chooses This book starts with a dilemma faced by a pretty merchant's daughter confronted by her father's nasty creditor. So whatever she chooses she is in a fix. And if she demonstrates he is cheating then he will just ruin her father.

So she. You need to look at the book to see what she does, I won't spoil it. De Bono likes to point out that this phrase - lateral thinking - was coined by him and is now in the Oxford dictionary.
