Easy to understand and all the chapters and elements followed on nicely
The struggling maths girl
No, this is a book that I like to listen to over and over again
Yes, love how the aspects of thinking are broken up and clear examples given
The base point of ensuring deeper understanding before moving onto the next level, good foundation of understanding is imperative to build from
Easy conversational style, not too 'voice-over'
A number, reviewing topics from courses and for my job getting back to basics
Yes, the information is so obvious but yet so rare to apply. The authors take you through a process that allows you to remember and apply to everyday life.
Excellent fluctuation and passion of voice to topic
A system for effective thinking
Excellent audio, short and packed with actionable ways to think differently. I will listen to this one again.
Say something about yourself!
It's a solid book and I recommend it for those that would like to get into ideation mode. Our lack of knowledge on basic subject matters creates blind spots. This book helps you identify the gaps, mitigate them and see opportunities.
I am going to keep this short and sweet.
The concepts and ideas here are simple but they are definitely not basic.
This is the kind of book that you just keep and listen to it every few months for a refresher and no doubt that you will get something new out of it each time.
Say something about yourself!
Short, effective, and good.

I have not read / heard other books about effective thinking. I have heard books about self improvement, i it fall into that category.
I think the narrator did a great job. I dont know if i got any more or less out of listening to the book insted of reading it.

Great insides from a Teacher's standpoint to provoke thinking and learning. Helpful for Students an alike to be better at anything.
Great insides and samples to understand the process of thinking.
Insider tips of a Professor.
It's short, simple and straightforward. Doesn't try to tackle too much.
I didn't expect much from it, based on reviews and summary, but all in all, it's a good book I'll re-listen to again at some point in the future, where I might need some encouragement for my inner genius.
You see, the book describes what geniuses and alike are doing, to be and do what they are and do. They argue that anyone can mimic those elements of thinking. The elements ring true for me, because I've always been thinking that way: asking challenging question, being deeply curious, etc. So in a way, I'm "a natural talent/genius" and doesn't really need this book. But, it's good to know that what it extols is true. At least it is, based on my own experience, as well as the traits I see in other entrepreneuers, inventors, thinkers, creatives, I've come across.
Steve Jobs for example, exhibited all these 5 elements to a very high degree.
Go on and get yourself some genius:)
It was poorly narrated and an overall bad book, the content was dated and basic business stuff.
From this writer.
I would cut the whole book as it was a bunch of fluff.
It sucked, do not buy.
