About the Author:

Edward de Bono is widely regarded as the leading world authority in the direct teaching of creative thinking. He has written 60 books with translations into 37 languages. Dr. de Bono is the originator of the term “lateral thinking” and now has a network of more than 900 trainers in 28 countries around the world teaching his methods in business.

From Publishers Weekly:

Some parents may be confused by this busy primer, while others will agree with the author's premise that creative thinking skills can be directly taught. De Bono, a business and educational consultant, asserts that this manual is equally applicable to teaching children or senior executives. Crammed with exercises, games and diagrams, the book stresses that thinking involves "operacy"--the skills of doing or making things happen--as well as devising mental patterns more effective than the mind's routine habits. De Bono ( I Am Right You Are Wrong ) takes a no-nonsense approach, pointing out that much thinking is inefficient and that many highly intelligent people are not good thinkers. He urges the use of speculation, hypotheses, provocation and other techniques as a way to get out of mental ruts and generate ideas.
