About the Author
Edward de Bono holds an MD (Malta), MA (Oxford), DPhil (Oxford), PhD (Cambridge), DDes (RMIT) and LLD (Dundee). He has had faculty appointments at the university of Oxford, Cambridge, London and Harvard and was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford. He is the leading authority in the field of creative thinking and the direct teaching of creative thinking as a skill. From an understanding of how the human brain works as a self-organising information system, he derived the formal creative tools of lateral thinking. His tools for perceptual thinking (CoRT and DATT) are widely used in both schools and business. His institution, the Edward de Bono Foundation, teaches constructive thinking in Education and Management and has instructed leading corporations around the world including IBM, Microsoft, Prudentail, BT (UK), NTT (Japan), Nokia (Finland) and Siemens (Germany).

This book includes 62 creativity exercises that use random words to train your creative skills. The exercises can be used for self training to sharpen your creative thinking skills as well as for producing actual creative results individually or in a group.
I have used some of the methods tought in the book in creativity workshops I'm conducting and I have to say the results were very impressive. People like to use random words because it really frees them and easily gets their thougths out of the box.
The usual De Bono style is evident - a bit of self praise and paranoia coupled with great in-depth insights and detailed instructions.
I found it tedious to select words from his list randomly. Using DeBono's book one has to first consult a table of random numbers, or else roll 4 die, then use these numbers to index a single word. Too slow and makes one not want to follow up with more training. I can think of much better ways to find random words, so I must be pretty creative already (sarcasm).
The concept and method DeBono uses, however, I consider solid and worthy of use. Just find a faster simpler way.
