This book should leave the hospital along with your newborn I believe it would have been better have a title Improve your thinking rather than teach your child how to think.

This book should leave the hospital along with your newborn. It is for parents, for children and for anyone who wants to blaze a few more synapses pathways. I strongly recommend this book. I believe it would have been better have a title Improve your thinking rather than teach your child how to think. I found the book to be helpfully to any ag. he following captured my interest: & Difference between, cleverness, wisdom and intelligence & Perception vs. wisdom and use of logic & The first rule of Intellectualism If you do not have much to say make it complex as possible. amp; Criticism is much easier than creation.

Edward de Bono – the man who coined the term lateral thinking – says that while a child might be intelligent, it does . Part 2 and Part 3 contain exercises that help you teach your child how to think.

Edward de Bono – the man who coined the term lateral thinking – says that while a child might be intelligent, it does not necessarily follow that that child will become a good thinker. This is so often the mistaken assumption. In fact, de Bono states that intelligence can sometimes be a trap because many highly intelligent people often take up a view on a subject then use their intelligence to defend that view. De Bono divides the exercises into four groups – fun items, remote items, backyard items, and heavy items. As titled, these exercises are intended to be imaginative, crazy and speculative.

"A practical handbook for parents to use in training their children (ages nine and up) in effective thinking, although adults will surely benefit from the concepts as well."—Library Journal.
  • Nuadador
This is a how-to manual on thinking. The main emphasis is on habits of a good thinker, such as focus and purpose, and specific thinking tools, such as the "Plus, Minus and Interesting" technique. The book enumerates many specific methods of effective thinking and suggests exercises to practice each of them.
First some Critical Thinking (a valid, but inferior activity, according to the author). In spite of the cerebral subject, some statements sound decidedly lowbrow. Intellectualism is put down as an overly complex and non-creative activity. For a purportedly successful methodology that has been around for 20 years (at the time of the book's publishing), the absence of scientific proof that the theory works is surprising: only one study with a concrete result is mentioned. One stumbles over some inconsistencies: on p. 11 critical thinking is said not to have high value in today's society, but on the next page it is claimed to be important. Terms such as "mathematical necessity of creativity" betray the author's careless use of language ("mathematical" is out of place here).
The title is vague. 30 pages into the book one learns that the methods presented are generally applicable to children older than 9. This information should have been present in the cover notes or in the editorial reviews. The boy on the book's cover looks like a 5-year-old. The section on which methods to teach at which age should be in the back, since the special terms and abbreviations, mentioned before they are explained, do not make sense. The cover note claim that the book helps kids "to make today's life-and-death choices" seems rather heavy-handed.
The author does not suffer from modesty: "unlike many people in this field, Dr. de Bono is an original thinker". The book is rather dry, and it is especially unfortunate since the author would like children to be among the readers.
Developing educational tools for thinking echoes works of other writers (Rita Levi Montalcini, a 1986 Nobel winner in medicine, is one). Still, the author does not refer to anybody else's research on the topic, nor is there a list of literature.
The main strengths of the book are its practicality and optimism. The tools are simple to use and the exercises on each technique are engaging. Refreshing is the belief that everybody can be taught to become a thinker.
By far the most interesting and original part of the book is on teaching creativity by means of provocation and Random Word technique. Both tools are designed to bring one to a dramatically new view on the problem and to a solution that may be called "creative". Other techniques, such as "Consider All Factors" or "Outcome and Conclusion", might seem self-evident, but practicing them with children seems a worthwhile exercise.
To summarize, most shortcomings of the book seem overall insignificant, whereas the core is healthy. I would recommend the book to those who are prepared to practice or teach thinking techniques.

It is an excellent book which is introducing my kids to me for the first time ...
Since my kids were born I was playing with them and trying to teach them some skills in thinking and analyzing etc. but nothing compares to the exercises and thinking mentioned in the book ... For the first time in my life I can say I am beginning to know my children. The exercises are initiating extremely interesting discussions that are shocking me by the level of ideas and maturity a child can have ... In addition to that, these discussions are creating a stronger bond between my children and me due to the deep subjects discussed which are leading us to be open to each other ...
Thank you de Bono ...

The title should be: Learn How to Think, and Have Fun Doing It.
Perhaps the author did not want to insult adults by presuming he can teach them how to think. But that is exactly what he does.
Clever to make the title thusly.

What put me off a little bit at first was the author seems boastful in the first part of the book.

However, once you delve into the different "hats" that we can wear to "exercise" different types of thinking, you will have a lot of fun with this book.

What is especially useful is that the types of thinking are segmented out, with lots of examples and also suggested games and ways to practice that type of thinking.

We don't teach this stuff in schools. Not even close. This book is unique, and brilliant, and useful. I highly recommend that you buy it -- even if you don't have kids! Use it to learn how to think more productively, including problem solving and lateral thinking.

Disappointing! Don't waste your time reading this. Author seems to ramble; not organized very well.
  • Dusar
This seems a bit over-complex and I was a little underwhelmed. Some interesting ideas (parallel thinking), but not enough to warrant a higher review.

Teach Your Child How to Think
Most young kids are creative but disorganized thinkers. This book is parents' book to guide the child to think creatively and at the same time be well organized, also as a member of a group of people. The book is good summary of several de Bono's thinking methods and guide how to transfer these skills to other people. De Bono is outside of the envelope, his methods are widely used and work well, but do not form any established academic model. Some people consider de Bono non-scientific, because he mostly refers his own work and not that much other learned papers. In spite of not being a psychologist, I see many connections between his work and cognitive psychology and social dynamics. My opinion is, that this book suits as a summary of de Bono's methods, practical guide for parents informally teaching a small group of children, and maybe as a teachers' book for collaborative work from five year olds up to university level, with additional material to suit the students. Please remember, there is no fast track to creative thinking, it takes time.

this book is absolutely essential - every parent should be using it (teachers too).

learning the tools of thinking is the first step to actually thinking. i strongly recommend this book.
I just purchased this book a couple of days ago and have been reading it with my thirteen year old. People do seem to just assume that children know how to think. I clearly understood that this wasn't the case when my 13 year asked me to explain to her exactly what was thinking. We've gotten through the Carpenter and Thinking, Attitudes, and The Six Thinking Hats chapters. While reading, my daughter was literally on the edge of her seat. This is the second time I've purchased this book, in two days time, because my daughter asked that I buy a copy for her. This is a keeper, a book that we will definitely read many times over.
