The use of language skills to discuss, deduce and judge so that we may reason logically and accurately. Yes, science is true Apr 26, Cheong Soon-Fatt rated it really liked it Shelves: thinking-skills-coach. The second author that I have known to try to model how our mind work, beside Edward de Bono.
He have posited that we have multiple minds or subminds. These subminds are not part of the nervous system, such as immune system, digestive system and cutaneous system. He have illustrate the 8 polarity of thinking process. Jul 29, irfan rated it it was ok. Enlightening and full of refreshing ideas, some of which challenge the norms of your very own assumptions of how things are.
Definitely a must read for those who are into enriching their intellectual capacity of what intelligence presumably is, and what it ought to be, or should be. Apr 14, Cyn Armistead rated it really liked it. Marvelous book. In fact, I intend to buy a copy, now that I've read the one I checked out of the library. Oct 27, Leslie Tyler rated it it was ok. A few good ideas, but you have to wade through a fair amount of tedious stuff about brain function and oversimplified ideas. Somehow divided on this one. It felt as there are three very separate parts of this book.
First part was painting background for everything to come. As I have read multiple books on topic, this seemed to be really vague and generic, however, I think that this might be a good place to start, before you move on to something more in depth, like Behave or In search of Memory. Middle part contained methods on how to approach problems, how to think about them and how to solve them in reasonable way.

This Somehow divided on this one. This was the best part as here it was clear that author is on strong ground and broadcasts his message clearly. Chapters 4 - 11 is the meat and potatoes of this book and this convinced me to keep this in my shelf. And parts 12, 13 and appendixes seemed like just thrown in there for good measure to make book a bit thicker. For example, five step problem solving - he begun chapter by stating that it doesn't work, and then went on to present So how it's exactly different?

All in all, I still consider this to be worth reading if you are starting out. If you already have some background in this topic and have done some work, skip this and move on. If you are just looking for a starting point in self improvement, give this one a go! Overall, this was a decent book. It was a bit hoo-ey in some places, but I actually learned a few things. Some of the content is certainly more for the hippies, but most parts are practical and, indeed, useful in everyday life and its encounters.

Albrecht isn't without his own biases though: "The spectacular failure of the American attempt to forcibly install democracy in a country like Iraq, with its uniquely different socio-political substructure, raises not only the question of whether those who attempted it really understood the Arab culture, but also the question of how well they understood democracy itself, and how it actually worked in the cultures of their own birth" Man, that comment didn't age well Alice Walpole Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General just made a speech on 04 Dec about how Iraq is excelling in its embrace of democracy, even if it still has a long way to go.
