How to Have Creative Ideas by Edward De Bono

Book Description

Everybody wants to be creative. Creativity makes life more fun, more interesting and more full of achievement, but too many people believe that creativity is something you are born with and cannot be learned. In "How to Have Creative Ideas" Edward de Bono - the leading authority on creative thinking - outlines 62 different games and exercises, built around random words chosen from a list, to help encourage creativity and lateral thinking. For example, if the task were to provide an idea for a new restaurant and the random word chosen was 'cloak', ideas generated might be: a highwayman theme; a Venetian theme with gondolas; masked waiters and waitresses. Or, if asked to make a connection between the two random words 'desk' and 'shorts', readers may come up with: both are functional; desks have 'knee holes' and shorts expose the knees; traditionally they were both male-associated items. All the exercises are simple, practical and fun, and can be done by anyone.

Happiness Purpose by Edward De Bono Happiness Purpose, Paperback (November 2016)

Presents a method for achieving work-life balance. This book invites you to look at your life and measure the gap between these spaces - the smaller the gap, the greater our chances at happiness; but if the life-space is vastly bigger than the self-space, our coping ability is compromised and anxiety is likely.

I am Right, You are Wrong by Edward De Bono I am Right, You are Wrong, Paperback (September 2016)

Most of our everyday decision-making tends to be confrontational. Whether in large meetings, one-to-one or even in our own heads, opposite view points are pitted against each other. This book reveals how we can all be winners. It helps you to become a better thinker and decision maker.

Yo Tengo Razon, Tu Estas Equivocado by Edward De Bono Yo Tengo Razon, Tu Estas Equivocado, Paperback / softback (August 2016)

Drawing on our understanding of the brain as a self-organizing information system, Dr. de Bono shows that perception is the key to more constructive thinking and creativity. Here, in this brilliantly argued assault on outmoded thought patterns, he calls for nothing less than a New Renaissance.

Lateral Thinking by Edward De Bono Lateral Thinking, Paperback (August 2016)

Shows how to stimulate the mind in new and exciting ways. This is about freeing up your imagination.
