6 categories of thinking defined under "colored hat" images May 24 1999
By - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Excellent, unique presentation of the thought process. If everyone in the organization adopts the visually stimulating idioms suggested for each category of thought presented-- colored thinking hats, the group creative thought process can be managed much better and individuals guided into thought playing roles, without risk to their egos!
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).
Color helps many people. Dec 11 2012

For many people color is a mnemonic device. For the purposes of this book, color is more. It is a signal and an idea. Bringing the concepts of thinking into hats and color for problem solving can help people who like to build cohesion and get along so that objectivity is easier. If nothing else, this book has inspired me to buy more hats. Another book I have about color is quite different about what colors do for us. Then there is the Irlen Institute. What does this do for people who are color blind?
