The world is full of problems and conflicts. So why can we not solve them? According to Edward de Bono, world thinking cannot solve world problems because world thinking is itself the problem. And this is getting worse: we are so accustomed to readily available information online that we search immediately for the answers rather than thinking about them.
Our minds function like trying to drive a car using only one wheel. There's nothing wrong with that one wheel - conventional thinking - but we could all get a lot further if we used all four.
De Bono examines why we think the way we do from a historical perspective and uses some of his famous thinking techniques combined with new ideas to show us how to change the way we think.
If we strengthen our ability and raise our thinking level, other areas of our life - both personal and business success - will improve.
De Bono is the master of the original big 'concept' book and his enticement to us to use our minds as constructively as possible should appeal to a whole new generation of fans.

"Summary of previous work, annoyingly written."
Resonable summary of his previous work. If you are not familiar with his work then the book isn't bad. There are some phrases in the book which the author uses repeatatively, which grates after a while. Also De Bono continues to go on about his achievements which is also very annoying. Summary: good ideas, annoyingly written.
"Think - before you buy!"
The guy is just a charlatan. He 'adopts' previous 'good ideas' but does not provide any convincing examples of ideas that were the result of his methods.
