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).
De Bono starts off by explaining to the reader why it's a challenge to become a thinker. This book is based on his six different approaches or ways of thinking, (referred to hats in the book) that people should use in order to fully view all issues. He refers the ways as hats so one can "put on" or switch from one approach to another easily. Each hat has a color that would help the reader visualize the approach/function. (ex: black- negative, yellow-positive and so on ) colors include white, red, black, yellow, green, and blue. Having everyone in a group wear the same type of hat helps the issues, meeting, be more non-confrontational, organized, an effective.
Overall the book is very well structured with plenty of examples. This made it very fun, easy to read and comprehend. The book is "short and sweet" it does not drag and cuts right to the point. This book helped me organize my thought and allowed me to view all aspects using the different hats when I'm approached with an issue. I defiantly recommend it for meetings, leaders, teams, management and you!
