This review is from: Why Didn't I Think of That?: Think the Unthinkable and Achieve Creative Greatness (Hardcover)
Charles McCoy has written a relatively short and readable book. Informed by his years of experience including time as a judge in the Los Angeles Superior Court he's given structure to help find workable and sound solutions to complex issues. Perception, Deliberation, Quality and Systematic Thinking, Imagination, Intuition, Empathy and Careful Consideration - each one of the eight chapters could be used as a basis for a teaching or learning opportunity. Useful demonstrations and anecdotes bring home the ideas he descibes. I've yet to fully put into practice but at last I've found a tool that will help find a way through "the woods and the trees"; feeling perhaps as Arthur may have felt when he withdrew Excalibur the sword set in stone and was recognized as a King in England!
