The book is highly watery and too wordy for what it does. It seems to be 140 pages of arguments regarding why lateral thinking is important and how it is better than vertical thinking, instead of empowering the reader with skills one can apply in practice. I was expecting to understand a sort of reasoning one can use to solve lateral thinking tasks similar to the pebble puzzle, but not a clue was left in my hand when I closed the book. I found it highly impractical.

Interesting subject but the book is not what i expected. just one chapter got some useful tips. All the rest is just academic writing.

Do no try to 'read' this book it might not work. I found that by breaking it down and taking on a chapter at a time I could really concentrate and take it in. The following few days would then be spent using/trying techniques as laid out. It worked for me. Some regard this book as geared more towards teaching, but I found it very useful and am using it daily now especially at work with my team.

Spring cleaning for the mind. Re-reading after many years and benefitting from it.
