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."@en ;
