HASH(0xa591ad98) 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
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).
HASH(0xa4f85984) out of 5 stars Six Thinking Hats May 21 2015
By Corrine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Six Thinking Hats is a short and easy read packed with highly informative and useful problem solving techniques. De Bono uses many examples to show how these thinking hats can be used both correctly and incorrectly while trying to solve real world problems or have productive discussion. He also points out societies that have different ways of discussion, how the thinking hats are similar or differ from those, and the pros and cons of each.

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.
HASH(0xa5d2a734) 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?

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.
