Without a doubt, Edward De Bono is the father of modern thinking. Most of us have heard of lateral thinking but don't necessarily realise that De Bono created it. The book almost seems too easy to understand, and yet, when you get the the part on the 6 hats, it suddenly becomes an awakening to new ways of thinking and the progression and evolution of thought.
I would love to see many more beautiful minds around and I believe this information should be getting taught in schools, although it is at a comprehension level most can understand. Teach yourself, your family and your peers how to have a beautiful mind, thanks to Edward De Bono.
