Thinking is the most fundamental skill. Your happiness and your success depend upon your thinking. The main enemies of good thinking are: confusion and trying to do everything at once; not knowing what to do next; and the belief that thinking is the same as intelligence and that you can do nothing about it. Edward de Bono's masterly book puts forward a clear and effectively simple five-stage framework for thinking, and offers a structure that broadens our ability to respond to and cope with a vast range of situations. Teach Yourself to Think is software for the brain, turning it into a successful thinking mechanism, and, as such, will prove of immense value to us all.
