This brief survey of creative problem solving offers a collection of specific, practical procedures that one should use for various classes of problems -- ranging from machines that need repairing, to mathematical puzzles, engineering problems, poorly defined industrial problems, comprehending lectures and reading, remembering information, invention, and difficulties between people. The principles -- which are based on research and theory in cognitive psychology -- are applied to problems in daily living and focus on how to overcome one's own limitations in trying to solve a problem. Students thus learn principles for dealing with problems as well as what it is about themselves that can make the problem more or less difficult.From the Back Cover:
This brief survey of problem solving applies a series of prescriptive principles to a wide range of domains, including appliance repair, mathematics, logic puzzles, reading comprehension, remembering, invention, and interpersonal problems. The sheer breadth of application makes this an uncommon text.
