First published in 1967, this remarkable title from one of history’s greatest minds remains a must-read in the world of creative thinking.

There are three courses, each five days long and each created to focus on a different style of thinking, featuring: The Bottles Problem The Blocks Problem The L-Game The End Game A true life-changer, this book will have you thinking in ways that you never thought were possible.
"Edward de Bono believes that thinking is an enjoyable skill, that it is neither a painfully boring duty nor a pile of facts and semantic tricks. This skill can be developed directly - not as the by-product of a conventional education spent learning something else. This book offers a series of simple, but intriguing problems in thinking that require no special knowledge and no mathematics. The problems are designed to let the reader find out about his own personal style of thinking, its weakness and strenghts, and the methods, latent in himself, that he never uses. Being right is not always important - an error can lead to the right decision." --Publishers description.
Little attention is paid to the skill of thinking. There is a belief that information and intelligence are enough. Intelligence is like the horsepower of a car but thinking is the skill with which the car is driven. There are some highly intelligent people who are poor thinkers and some less intelligent people, who are better at thinking. In this practical book, Edward de Bono lays out some simple but powerful tools with which we can optimise our thinking, decision making and problem solving. Most of the errors of thinking are errors of perception and that is precisely where these tools help. Learn to think and take control of your life.
In this fourth edition, Bryan Lawson continues his discussion, trying to understand how designers think. He does this by mapping out the issues concerned with the design process, with design problems and solutions and design thinking. This edition adds to the previous debates by including a new chapter on 'Design as Conversation' reflecting on how designers, either consciously or unconsciously, monitor, reflect on, control and change their thinking. It also includes a new series of case studies on notable designers including the racing car designer Gordon Murray, product designer James Dyson, and architects such as Edward Cullinan and Glenn Murcott. * A unique look at the psychology of the designer that provides a greater insight to the process of design * 'Demystifies' the complexity of the subject and uncovers new ways that design can be done * Conclusions are drawn from years of research and provide the very latest debate on the subject
An explanation of the key principles for developing thinking skills and applying them creatively and productively to every challenge. It examines: understanding the way your mind works; adopting a structured approach to reach the best decision; assessing risk and generating successful options for action; using brainstorming and lateral thinking to increase your creativity; and creating a personal strategy to become a more effective practical thinker.
Last Bus to Woodstock is the novel that began Colin Dexter's phenomenally successful Inspector Morse series. 'Do you think I'm wasting your time, Lewis?' Lewis was nobody's fool and was a man of some honesty and integrity. 'Yes, sir.' An engaging smile crept across Morse's mouth. He thought they could get on well together . . .' The death of Sylvia Kaye figured dramatically in Thursday afternoon's edition of the Oxford Mail. By Friday evening Inspector Morse had informed the nation that the police were looking for a dangerous man – facing charges of wilful murder, sexual assault and rape. But as the obvious leads fade into twilight and darkness, Morse becomes more and more convinced that passion holds the key . . . Last Bus to Woodstock is followed by the second Inspector Morse book, Last Seen Wearing.
