About the Author:

Edward de Bono invented the concept of lateral thinking. A world-renowned writer and philosopher, he is the leading authority in the field of creative thinking and the direct teaching of thinking as a skill.Dr de Bono has written more than 60 books, in 40 languages, with people now teaching his methods worldwide. He has chaired a special summit of Nobel Prize laureates, and been hailed as one of the 250 people who have contributed most to mankind.

From Publishers Weekly:

De Bono ( I Am Right You Are Wrongpunc. ok ), who is credited with originating the term "lateral thinking," here advocates a positive, direct approach as the most effective means of personal or worldwide change. In a book printed on "cheerful" yellow paper, he proposes a philosophy to end not only individual misery, but also war and other global problems. To overthrow negativity, he suggests the use of such symbols as armbands and the hand (whose digits stand for such values as effectiveness and self-improvement) to energize the "yellow revolution." It's hard to take issue with de Bono's sincerity and upbeat arguments, but this often scattershot collection of advice and aphorisms ("In the positive revolution there are no enemies") doesn't carry much force.
