This book appears to be unfinished in the sense that the style is one of presenting a series of terse statement paragraphs with a liberal sprinkling of example paragraphs. A smooth transition between paragraphs is often missing--the book almost appears to be an organized presentation of the author's brainstorming sessions!
I personally found the book refreshing, thought provoking and timeless ( in the sense that anyone interested in managing creative thought will always be able to use the techniques presented).
The knowledge that can be gained through reading this book will work best with a group of people that have also read it so that when someone ways, “Put on you white thinking hat” or “Take off your red thinking hat” the transition of thinking a certain way and focusing a discussion is quick and easy.
De Bono makes it easy to become a thinker through his motivational writing style. It feels like you are having a conversation with him and when he tells you to physically do something you will want to do it. I felt very motivated by this book because it made me believe that if I start doing the motions of a thinker, that with practice I will become a good one.
