But de Bono is building a logical argument throughout the book and while it seems like he is taking too long to get to his points, the points are WORTH IT! This is NOT a book on practical tools. He has written other books about practical tools (of which he reminds you quite often). De Bono calls this "perceptual thinking" or "water logic. If we applied gender stereotypes to the contrasting modes of thinking, it would be easy to assign rock logic as masculine and water logic as feminine. Interesting to note that, for the millenia that rock logic has been in the ascendant, patriarchy has been the dominant social force.

In this trailblazing book, Edward de Bono shows why our . .Edward de Bono's discussions on lateral thinking are very clearly set out and easy to read. Years after reading I Am Right, You Are Wrong, the mental images created by De Bono endure. He uses analogies and anecdotes that help the reader think about how to think. If you ever wonder why people on the one hand are capable of thinking so creatively, and on the other hand can so easily delude themselves, this is the book to read.

In I Am Right,You Are Wrong, lateral-thinking guru Edward de Bono challenges this 'rock logic' of rigid categories and point-scoring arguments which is both destructive and exhausting. Instead he reveals how we can all be winners. Clearer perception is the key to constructive thinking and more open-minded creativity. He has chaired a special summit of Nobel Prize laureates, and been hailed as one of the 250 people who have contributed most to mankind.

This book opened a lot of doors in my mind that I've been trying to get through for a long time.

This book is a great mix of topics that helped me gain a different understanding (several mental models are proposed in the book that offer a mental paradigm shift) of the relationship of emotion to thought to psychology, philosophy, belief, truth, etc. and helped me gain a historical and cultural understanding of the belief structures I have working in my life.

In this book, De Bono proposes that critical thinking is powerful, but less than perfect, if it is the only thinking we use. He proposes that Critical/Rational thinking as developed by Socrates/Plato has provided the means for our technological success today, but has also blocked our progress as humans because it is only one kind of thinking (black or white, right or wrong). There are other ways of thinking and when they are used in conjunction with rational thought we have a better chance at improving our human interaction and the world we live in.

I have a true, good friend who recommended this book. I had asked him for his opinion on why I feel the need to "evangelize" other people. "Why do I feel this need to convince other people that my beliefs are correct and that theirs are somehow flawed if they don't match mine exactly?" I've observed how this practice has had poor effects in my own life and also how similar practices have not had good effects in the world e.g. War, Politics, Religion, etc. On a technical level we've made all kinds of progress, yet on a social level we are still acting like cavemen!

So, anyway, this year I've been studying motivation, behavior, psychology, belief, various religions, etc. attempting to understand myself and how/why I interact with other people in the way I do even though I know my confrontational approach is less than Ideal. This book gave me some breakthrough thinking on this subject and I'm still sorting through the debris of my former beliefs on human motivation as a result. This is why I feel like I will give this book 5 stars in a few months after I've had a chance to study it more. Right now, I'm wondering if I've been logically tricked...

One thing is for sure, I didn't "get" De Bono's 6 Hats until reading this book. I bought "SIX THINKING HATS" at the same time I bought "I'M RIGHT, YOU'RE WRONG" and it seems like these two books together offer practical approaches to revolutionize our thinking patterns and improve our human interactions.

Do these ideas result in practical change and improvement for myself and world I live in? I will need to report on this later. As a intellectually stimulating book I give it 5 stars. For pragmatism, I give it 3 because I haven't tested it yet. So, for today, I give it 4 stars overall.

Note: This was not an easy book to read. It seemed like de Bono took forever to get to his points. In fact, at one point, I skipped a few chapters and then found I had to go back and make them up. His teaching seems so simple in hindsight! But de Bono is building a logical argument throughout the book and while it seems like he is taking too long to get to his points, the points are WORTH IT! This is NOT a book on practical tools. He has written other books about practical tools (of which he reminds you quite often). This book provides a foundation on which to develop practical solutions.

I've read this book first time almost 20 years ago and enjoyed it then as much I did now. Excellent work with very specific practical implications for anybody who is interested in how human mind works, how to understand what people "really" mean, and what is making jokes funny :-). It is on my very favorite books list. Highly recommend it.

This book is a must read for every thinking person. I actually bought two copies so that I'd have one to lend to a friend. I had come up with many of the same ideas that he did as early as my freshman year at MIT back in 1956. He compares 'rock logic' with 'water logic'. The former refers to unchanging conditions, whereas the latter considers changing conditions such as a fluid, water in this case. As it turns out water is the key to life, yet the physical mechanism that produces 'structured water' had been totally overlooked. Even today, those who study this and tout its many benefits do not understand what is going on. The rock logic model says that water is just H2O, totally ignoring its isotopes of heavy water and the hybrid form of water where one of the hydrogen atoms is just a proton and the other is a deuteron (the bound nuclear state of a proton and a neutron).

There are so many errors in physics that arise out out this rock logic way of thinking that it is amazing. We are told to think outside the box. Sadly some physicists can't even think inside the box when they use the rock logic of 'I Am Right. You Are Wrong'.

This is pretty complete and logically consistent book on brain functioning and social consequences of this functioning. Also, de Bono offered number of methods to learn and teach effective thinking.I'm not sure if appeal to follow new thinking approach based on perception can change our society. This method contradict to some traditions based on hierarchy and aggression in pursuing the goals. From other side same methodology or close to them are used in the serious institutions like thinking tanks so on. So, if you need creativity in your life follow the methods and principles but do not be frustrated if other people do not support them.
