From the Inside Flap:

THE PROBLEM SOLVING JOURNEY

"Chris Hoenig's passion, experience and insight on problem solving have produced a gem of a book a cut above everything in this field in terms of usefulness and originality. Whether you're a professional at work, or a concerned citizen at home, if you want to make something happen that matters in the world, this should be your guide." Bill Bradley, former U.S. Senator and Presidential Candidate

"Chris Hoenig's book is a survival guide for anyone who wants to live, learn and lead in the digital age." Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business Administration, USC and author of Managing the Dream

"Hoenig's unblinking curiosity about the thinking process has produced one of the most original and useful business books of the year. What keeps us coming back to this serious and analytical work is his uncanny gift of making a quote or a vignette into a window with something always happening on the other side that makes the elusive magic of problem solving a grand and systematic process." Naomi Seligman, Founder, The Research Board "Chris Hoenig has cracked the code on how professionals can solve problems faster, cheaper and better, using technology as an ally rather than a crutch. This book not only changes the way we navigate complex problems, it changes how we think about navigating those problems." Tim McClure, Co-founder, GSD&M Advertising

"One doesn't usually describe a professional book as a page-turner, but that fittingly describes Chris Hoenig's The Problem Solving Journey. The adventure of reading it is as rewarding as the ultimate destination, a comprehensive insight into and understanding of what it takes to optimize your problem-solving skills. It's as much a guide book for life as it is an instruction manual for professional success." Dr. Alan B. Salisbury, former Chairman of Learning Tree International USA, Inc, and COO of the Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corp. (MCC)

"Problem solving is the key to managing in the information age yet, until this book, no one had provided the roadmap to becoming a world class problem solver. Hoenig's book maps out this route and offers numerous valuable tools in a lively and engaging format that draws the reader into the minds of great problem solvers revealing what you can learn from them and apply in your own work. This book is indispensable to anyone who aspires to be a leader in the new economy." Donald Gips, Group Vice-President, Global Marketing & Sales, Level 3 Communications

"The Problem Solving Journey combines the best from the fields of leadership, managerial decision making, problem solving, and knowledge management. Hoenig's six problem solving personalities will frame these fields and the very nature of professional work for years to come." Guilbert Hentschke, Professor of Education and Management, Rossier School of Education, University of Southern California

"From the challenge to the complete solution, this seminal work on problem solving is a must- read for all senior executives and those aspiring to be. Certain to become a graduate level text/reference book, it should also be every project manager's bible. Chris Hoenig has captured and blended the art, science, discipline and psychology of problem solving in a unique and thoroughly credible, and easily understood guide, applicable to any-sized problem the bigger the better. Breaking the process into six basic and logical elements, he beautifully defines and explains them using highly topical, interesting and relevant real cases, leaving little or nothing to the imagination. If I were a CEO, I would have a copy in the hands of all my senior staff!" Major General Don Lasher (ret), and former Chief Information Officer, USAA

"For journalists, executives, teachers and all professionals, this book is an entertaining and accessible guide to problem solving. Chris Hoenig outlines six essential skills, mapping a clear path through the process. The book offers the reader both inspirational and practical tools to achieve personal and professional goals." Roberta Oster Sachs, Emmy award-winning network news producer

"This is the best business book since In Search of Excellence. Instead of telling the what stories of great companies, Hoenig explains the how behind great problem solvers. The result is a timeless recipe for business success that is a must-read for everyone from Fortune 100 CEOs to Web entrepreneurs." Tom Melcher, former Executive Vice-President for Strategic Development at CNET and currently CEO of There, Inc.

"Having the right knowledge is vital to survival in the age of information overload. Hoenig provides the precisely tailored, high value knowledge we all need to get ahead and stay ahead." James Adams, CEO of IDefense, Inc.
