FOREWORD BY DE BONO ON THE ABOVE BOOKS
” Thinking is the most important human skill. Nothing is more important than thinking. We use thinking to enjoy and offer the values we hold. We use thinking to design the future. The quality of our future will depend directly on the quality of our thinking. On the whole, our thinking is not good. We rely on recognizing standard situations and then providing the standard answer. This is excellent but it is not good enough. We need to do far better. If I believe our thinking was excellent I would be pessimistic about the future of the world. It is because our thinking can be greatly improved that I am an optimist……thinking is a skill. Thinking skill can be learned.
The great value of this book is that it shows how the thinking skills can be used in real life situations. Thinking is not academic philosophy but must work in real life. Read this book – and then take the training.
Edward de Bono
