3.0 out of 5 stars Some Good Ideas 1 Sep 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio Cassette
Anyone who is familiar with the think-oustide-the-box genre of self-improvement and creativity books will find very little new or inspiring here. And despite the title, the book also has very little to do with Einstein. A deeper analysis of the great thinker's intellectual history woud have been more useful than the largely recycled do's and dont's that dominate the book.
The points presented here, however, are hardly without merit, especially the tips on brainstorming and free association

1.0 out of 5 stars I don't think so. 31 May 2003
By Gaetan Lion - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is really vague in its recommendation. Most of the suggestions are not readily applicable.
If you want a much better book on thinking read "How to Think like Leonardo da Vinci" by Michael Gelb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the kids! 14 Dec 2000
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I believe this book expands on critical thinking. The one thing that has limited our children in improving thier thought, has been the solidifying of thought or also known as rules or traditions. Those elements due benefit society, but the encouragement of critical thinking can improve it. This book helps question why you do the things you do. Are you a go with the flow type of person? Do you feel like you are a affiliator instead of an achiever? It starts in the mind. This book will help you challenge old ways of thinking and learn to renew your thinking to improve good to better.

5.0 out of 5 stars A structured way to break out of your creativity rut 2 July 2004
By John C. Dunbar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Some other reviewers have said that this is a simple book for beginners. I have many books on creativity and I thought the book was excellent and wouldn't rate it for beginners. The book was laid out very clearly and thus someone unfamiliar with some creativity concepts could follow it.
As I read the book I have become fascinated with how the author combined solution methodologies.
There's a lot of work in following his long list of things to do and ask, but I think the results will be well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Tools 17 Aug 2008
By G. Moran - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have read a great many books on process and decision making and I think this one is practical, usable, accessible, and straightforward. I used one of the principles a day after finishing the book, with great results. I would recommend to anyone who wants to tweak their thinking and problem solving skills.
