Six thinking hats by Edward De Bono( Book )

159 editions published between 1985 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 2,744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thinking often proceeds as drift and waffle and reaction," writes de Bono. In this book, he presents a way to become a better thinker. He separates thinking into six distinct modes, identified with six colored "thinking hats": White: facts, figures, and objective information; Red: emotions and feelings; Black: logical negative thoughts; Yellow: positive constructive thoughts; Green: creativity and new ideas; and Blue: control of the other hats and thinking steps. "Putting on" a hat focuses thinking; "switching" hats redirects thinking. With the different parts of the thinking process defined, discussions can be better focused and more productive. Using real-life situations as examples, de Bono creates scenarios that show how the effective use of "thinking hats" can: focus thinking more clearly; lead to more creative thinking; and improve communication and thus decision-making

The underlying argument of this book is that there are two kinds of thinking-- vertical and lateral.

This book is a practical explanation of how creativity works and discusses how to move beyond a vertical mode of thought to tap the potential of lateral thinking
Teach your child how to think by Edward De Bono( Book )

23 editions published between 1992 and 2015 in English and German and held by 1,263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our increasingly complicated lifestyle demands clear and constructive thinking: making decisions, making choices, taking initiatives, and being creative. Watching television for twenty to thirty hours a week, as many children do, results in a passive mind that can only copy what others are doing (including drugs, sex, and violence). Give your children a better chance in life. Thinking is a skill ... even a superior brain is wasted without it. You can start to teach your children to think - now. With examples, exercises, games, and drawings, Dr. de Bono, Rhodes scholar and leading authority on the direct teaching of thinking, demonstrates the difference between intelligence and thinking, and provides a step-by-step method for helping children develop clear and constructive thinking. Even one or two thinking habits taken from this book and given to your children may strongly affect their life
