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.

    " This is hard to get through, but I love the concept. I would recommend you read the bits about the successes people who have employed his approach have had, to motivate you to continue on. "

    " Great book! I enjoyed especially the opening (this is not a nice book!). I believe our ways of thinking should be developed and improved and we can't achieve this by relying on schools! The writer has very strong opinions on the matter which are enlightening. An informative an enjoyable read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Karim | 3/4/2013

    " De Bono has an irritating style of writing,he keeps on repeating himself to deliver the message. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Noushin Afrashteh | 2/22/2013

    " This whole book is a promotional ad for his other books. No exercises given to try out his ideas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joyce | 1/12/2013

    " Nice to stop and think about thinking! "

    " Some useful tools for facilitation and meetings "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Oliver | 8/7/2012

    " The book repeats the insights expressed in the introduction ad nauseum, interspersed with the author's accounts of all his successes. He says these stories aren't intended as boasts, but the way they are presented suggests otherwise. Wordy, fluffy, bad. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Abdurrahman Al-Qahtani | 3/23/2012

    " Some good ideas throughout the book, but my feeling is that it's a bunch of blog posts collected in the same field - the importance of thinking. What killed me as well, is the repetion of some of the facts and arguments. I guess De Bono's other books are better than this one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy | 12/7/2011

    " This book is "excellent - but it is not enough." "

    " It's a book that opens you to a different world, it may not teach much, but shows you the way. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 مصطفى قاسم | 6/22/2011

    " I think this book can be summarized into three papers . "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eliot Ho Wai Kwan | 5/4/2011

    " The book is ok, but the author do too much advertising in between the content... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy Nealen | 4/25/2011

    " The latest from Edward De Bono - the man who thinks, talks and teaches about thinking. Relatively easy read - but keep in mind I have read a number of his previous books. His focus has gravitated toward social problems as opposed to business problems. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Moayyad | 4/18/2011

    " Like the book very much.
    but, It would have been much better if the author hadn't talked about himself a lot. "
