It's an exciting concept and framework for thinking... but this book bashes you over the head with basics and doesn't detail enough in the way of practical use (e.g., an entire workshop, meeting, or any larger context). ( )

Dr. Edward de Bono is a leader in conceptual thinking and his book has some good advice, however, the book does not read like it was written by a man with his credentials. I am a strong advocate for keeping things simple. So my review is a compliment.

Decent book with decent ideas. However I think that the practice of the concepts in the book would be hard to implement. However I think it is a good read in learning how to break down a meeting to make them more effective. To try an curb the "Meeting after the Meeting" that happens in so many offices across the country. ( )

picked this up to help kick my creativity in gear. However, Mr. Burns peed on this one too (and it IS a library book, so I get to buy them a new one). I'm getting really sick of this.
