Trash from a master

From a genius such mediocre stuff is not acceptable. It is bad by any standard. Get any self improvement book. Dale Carnegie is 100 times better then this trash from a brilliant man!

too theoretical

the book is like points and it lacks explanation, it gives you a point and them one example, it doesn't go deeper in to the subject, i would use the book to tech at a university but not to teach my self.

Simple and clear advices, easy to listen to

Where does How to Have a Beautiful Mind rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The book focuses mostly on social interactions and how we can gain knowledge, share this knowledge and develop our thinking skills just as we can develop our physical skills.<br/><br/>The book seems a bit incomplete for it's title. I expected some exercises for analytic thinking, for creativity, even meditation and so on, because the title led me to believe that it covers more topics related to thinking.<br/><br/>Overall it's a good book and I recommend it.

Too long

Without a doubt Edward de Bono is a real Masterhinker. Through this book he helps us to use our mind more effectively to gain a better understanding of the world. The book contains deep insights put into easy-to-understand language.
However, the book is VERY long. You will need some patience to finish it. Personally, I prefer PRACTICAL wisdom delivered in a concise manner. If you are looking for some hands-on advise (e.g. for business use), you will not find much in this book. If however, you just want to broaden your mind without being in a rush, this might be one of the best books to read.

Thinking mastery

Without a doubt, Edward De Bono is the father of modern thinking. Most of us have heard of lateral thinking but don't necessarily realise that De Bono created it. The book almost seems too easy to understand, and yet, when you get the the part on the 6 hats, it suddenly becomes an awakening to new ways of thinking and the progression and evolution of thought.
I would love to see many more beautiful minds around and I believe this information should be getting taught in schools, although it is at a comprehension level most can understand. Teach yourself, your family and your peers how to have a beautiful mind, thanks to Edward De Bono.
