"Six Thinking Hats excites everyone in this organization. It has added a new fun dimension to creativity and accountability in our workplace and has shown excellent results." (Ron Barbaro, President, Canadian Operations, The Prudential Insurance Company )
Audio sound quality is very distracting. It's sounds like something from a 1950's radio. The audio format that this book is recorded on is not compatible for Zune users.
I purchased this book because I thought it was narrated by the author. As it turns out, a male and female with strong American accents narrate the whole book without introducing themselves. I don't think either of them is Dr. De Bono. I am disappointed. The style is shocking and is not the same text as the physical book which was a true masterpiece.
Presentation: poor sound quality; sounds like a cheesy radio show from the '50s or '60s.Far too many self-promoting references to "Dr. De Bono" and his genius. "Some say that Dr. De Bono has inherited the mantle that Socrates passed down 2000 years ago." Whaaaa? Pretty full of ourselves, aren't we? Since this work is about thinking methodologies, the focus should be there, rather than on its creator.
Pretty good script with good illustrative examples of the various "thinking hats." These are really useful ideas on identifying and specifying various ways of thinking: looking at issues from various perspectives and for various purposes. Overall, this is a compelling, analytical way of examining how we view ideas that will prompt us to use rigor in creating and considering ideas, proposals, etc. Worth a read, if not a listen.
As other reviews have mentioned, this appears to be very dated, and certainly doesn't sound like a narration of a book. The recording keeps refering to the "audio cassette course" that you are listening to. I don't think that this is Dr de Bono narrating, or an actual book. It is incredibly sexist with the use of the male and female voices too. Refund.
anything other than this tripe
not based on this, no. But then I don't believe this 50's era american male and female voice is Dr de Bono
not really. couldn't listen to much of it. It was like listening to sexist dogs barking into a bucket.
no. make it stop
Unable to download to my Android phone or iPad, unable to sync from my Mac or PC. Very, very frustrating. Disappointing. Ridiculous.
