It's something you need to work on everyday, even for 5 minutes a day add that to the list of things you should be doing everyday even for five minutes, stretching, meditating, napping, etc. I guess the book was OK, got a little bored wading through the exercises [these are suggestions for a tacher, an I've always wanted to improve my lateral thinking skills.

You need both. Self-reinforcing patterns and laziness vertical are good! You can sit around disrupting all day, otherwise you never get things done It's not about right or wrong, just about different, generating alternatives. Use vertical thinking later to sift through the crap. Suspending judgment. Hang on to the blocked-by-openness thing. Argh, now I'm frustrated.

Become a de Bono Master Thinker

Everyone is born creative. Creativity can't be learned, but it involves unlearning some of the approaches we learned as part of education. This book explains the process which helps in improving creativity. This is must read for professionals who solves many technical problems day to day and also for college students to have a successful career. Lateral thinking is an alternative way of thinking that leaves some room for incorrect ideas to surface without being judged or shut down before their time. We tend to think in a structured way in order to find the correct path towards the answer.

But with lateral thinking, the purpose is finding something interesting and eventually getting to an answer regardless of the path we took to get there. The book is good at explaining what vertical and lateral thinking are and how they differ from each other, and it provides some techniques to facilitate lateral thinking along with practices to actually try out those techniques. I loved the analogies the author made to explain the concept of lateral and vertical thinking, it simplified how the brain processes information and the possible limitations it entails.

I also appreciated some of the techniques presented to practice lateral thinking, even though some of them are common sense and we just need to be conscious of them when needed. The other MAJOR disappointment and the main reason this book got a 2 was the amount of redundant information. Key Takeaways: 1. The way the mind works is by trying to fit pieces of information into an already known pattern thus the order in which you receive information matters and shifts your way of thinking. Vertical thinking is focused on what is correct and the best while avoiding making mistakes. Lateral thinking suspends judgment and generative.

Acknowledging dominant ideas and their boundaries helps in loosening things up and going in a different direction.

When dealing with concepts and rules reverse and reorder the information to challenge the preconception. The usefulness of generated ideas from brainstorming can be immediate solution , generate new ideas, or for reframing the problem. Our perception can be polar black. The basis of Edward De bonos theory of thinking 'lateral' or in essense, more broadly. This was one of the first of Edward De bono's books that I read.

Great read. In his efforts to explain complex theorys, he uses insightful abstract comparisons that his theorys have with tangible objects. Love it. Being creative is a process, seeing through different lenses and different ways of using information. Also most importantly practice.

Good one. This book starts with a dilemma faced by a pretty merchant's daughter confronted by her father's nasty creditor. The creditor says he will settle the issue with a game of chance. Where they stand are white and black stones.

See a Problem?

A white stone means the debt is settled, a black stone means the debt is settled but she must marry the money-lender. Our heroine notices that the money lender puts two black stones in the bag. So whatever she chooses This book starts with a dilemma faced by a pretty merchant's daughter confronted by her father's nasty creditor. So whatever she chooses she is in a fix. And if she demonstrates he is cheating then he will just ruin her father.

So she. You need to look at the book to see what she does, I won't spoil it. De Bono likes to point out that this phrase - lateral thinking - was coined by him and is now in the Oxford dictionary. Why he should worry that people do not realise he invented the idea I don't know - his books have allowed him to buy a whole island near Venice apparently, which can't be bad.

Lateral Thinking

I have recently noticed that I started to stumble upon really simple, but still brilliant ideas that can change my life for the better. But I am coming up with those ideas rather accidentally, in a haphazard way. So, I wondered if there's a way to find a distinct pattern, a sort of well-proven technique to pull off "eurekas" every single day.

In De Bono's "Serious Creativity", which I read a couple of weeks ago, the author dwells upon his concept of "Six thinking hats" and some other I have recently noticed that I started to stumble upon really simple, but still brilliant ideas that can change my life for the better.
