Abstract:

This book is a storehouse of interesting activities, whose point is to help you think better -- more clearly, more imaginatively, and more critically, than you do now. The author has based his book on three assumptions: 1- thinking is as much a matter of attitude as it is of skills; 2- thinking often proceeds in an indirect, roundabout way rather than a straight line; and 3- thinking is an activity embedded in everyday life, not one occasionally done in school. -- Back cover.
