Book Description

March 2 2010

Argument is inefficient, ineffective and extremely slow. Argument was never designed to be constructive. The parallel thinking of the Six Hats method is rapidly replacing argument around the world. With the Six Hats method the fullest use is made of everyone's intelligence, experience and information. The Six Hats also removes all "ego" from the discussion process.

An inspiring man with brilliant ideas. De Bono never ceases to amaze with his clarity of thought. Richard Branson

About the Author

Edward de Bono has had faculty appointments at the universities of Oxford, London, Cambridge and Harvard. He is widely regarded as the leading authority in the direct teaching of thinking as a skill. He originated the concept of lateral thinking and developed formal techniques for deliberate creative thinking. He has written fifty-seven books, which have been translated into thirty-four languages, has made two television series and there are over 4,000,000 references to his work on the Internet.

Dr. de Bono has been invited to lecture in fifty-two countries and to address major international conferences. In 1989 he was asked to chair a special meeting of Nobel Prize laureates. His instruction in thinking has been sought by some of the leading business corporations in the world such as IBM, Du Pont, Shell, Eriksson, McKinseys, Ciba-Geigy, Ford and many others. He has had a planet named after him by the International Astronomic Union and was named by a group of university professors in South Africa as one of the 250 people in all of history who have contributed most to humanity.

Dr. de Bono runs the most widely used programme for the direct teaching of thinking in schools. This is now in use in many countries around the world.

Dr. de Bono's key contribution has been his understanding of the brain as a self-organizing system. From this solid base he set out to design practical tools for thinking. His work is in use equally in the boardrooms of some of the world's largest corporations and with four-year-olds in school. His design of the Six Hats method provides, for the first time, Western thinking with a constructive idiom instead of adversarial argument. His work is in use in élite gifted schools, rural schools in South Africa and Khmer villages in Cambodia. The appeal of Dr. de Bono's work is its simplicity and practicality.

5.0 out of 5 stars 6 categories of thinking defined under "colored hat" images May 24 1999
By mike.savage@msfc.nasa.gov - Published on Amazon.com
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).

The content of this book is very useful. It is very good to study the way make our frameworks, perceptions, and perspectives. I found it a bit dense at times.
5.0 out of 5 stars Color helps many people. Dec 11 2012
By Charlotte Fairchild - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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?

By Belinda Meyer - Published on Amazon.com
I have delayed reading this book, as I thought it may be too complex and philosophical, but this book is so well written and structured that anyone can grasp and use the concepts. Six Thinking Hats offers a New way to tackle problems and avoid arguments.
