Edward Dr Bono's book has three parts:
The Need for Creative Thinking
Lateral Thinking Tools & Techniques
The Application of Creative Thinking.
If you're familiar with Edward's books, the first part is a little preamble which is a refresher course on the way the mind organises itself and cites the need to break 'across' ( laterally) usual thought patterns.
The second part is a 'toolbox' for thinking creatively.
The last part covers putting in practice what we've learned.
I like the book, but found it heavy going at times. There is a lot of, perhaps necessary, repetition as he explains how each tool fits different needs for creativity.
I think if these concepts/ principles could be in the format of a pack of cards, ( like Creative Whack Pack), they would be a lot easier to put into practice. I hope Mr De Bono considers this, ( could I claim copyright)?
