Edward de Bono discusses them one after the other in his book: -Seeking alternatives -Thinking non-sequentially -Undoing selection processes -Shifting attention -Giving random input. I guess that it was this book that laid the foundation for de Bono’s overwhelming success as a think tank and business coach later on. Strangely enough, then, this booklet is the least known and perhaps the least popular among all his books

Mechanism of Mind book.

Mechanism of Mind book.

The book The Mechanism of Mind by Edward de Bono details the underpinning model of mind that leads to the many thinking skills developed by its author, including lateral thinking. The model detailed in the book, and referred to again in many of Edward de Bono's other books, is one of Neurones networked together by many stronger and weaker connections and activating as a result of input stimulus or stimulation from other neurones that are themselves active.

Edward Charles Francis Publius de Bono (born 19 May 1933) is a Maltese physician, psychologist, author, inventor and consultant. He originated the term lateral thinking, wrote the book Six Thinking Hats and is a proponent of the teaching of thinking. He originated the term lateral thinking, wrote the book Six Thinking Hats and is a proponent of the teaching of thinking as a subject in schools. Edward Charles Francis Publius de Bono was born in Malta on 19 May 1933. Educated at St. Edward's College, Malta he then gained a medical degree from the University of Malta

This is perhaps one of de Bono's most subtle and exquisitely crafted books. The key component of mind is of course memory.

This is perhaps one of de Bono's most subtle and exquisitely crafted books. Everything else in the brain is just mechanics: special and often fleeting arrangements, configurations, modules and sub-modules and functional components of memory formed mostly as byproducts of the mind's activity and processing.

The Mechanism of Mind presents Edward de Bono’s original theories on how the brain functions, processes information and organises it. It explains why the brain, the ’mechanism’, can only work in certain ways and introduces the four basic types of thinking that have gone on to inform his life’s. It explains why the brain, the ’mechanism’, can only work in certain ways and introduces the four basic types of thinking that have gone on to inform his life’s work, namely ‘natural thinking’, ‘logical thinking’,’ mathematical thinking’ and ‘lateral thinking’. De Bono also outlines his argument for introducing the word ‘PO’ as an alternative to the word ‘NO’ when putting lateral thinking into practice.

Edward de Bono’s methods are simple but powerful. The beautiful mind described in this book is a mind that can be appreciated by others.

Edward de Bono’s methods are simple but powerful. The use of just one method produced 21,000 ideas for a steel company in one afternoon. He has taught thinking to Nobel prize winners and Down’s syndrome youngsters. Edward de Bono holds an MD (Malta), MA (Oxford), DPhil (Oxford), PhD (Cambridge) and DDes (RMIT). It is not the mind of a person who sits in a corner and solves very complex puzzles. It is a mind that can be appreciated by others – usually through conversation.

I am enjoying this book and I need the blunt advice put forth by Edward de Bono. The content is straightforward and the examples are helpful and relevant to understanding the concepts. I think that many people will find the advice obvious, but for someone such as myself who needs a hand with thinking, communication, and analysis, the chapters and their summaries are useful as another one of my tools for understanding my brain and my life.

This book works for so many different levels and for so many applications, it's a must have for me.
I make a point of reading it at least once a year. I've got a hard copy and now one on my iPad, lovely book to 'dip into' whenever I have some time.
I bought this book initially to improve sales, but it has affected every area of my life.

everyone has seen the kids who are get good grades in academic left brain subjects but have horrible social skills and personalities as a result of academic schizophrenia, if you care more about your child than about showing them off like an accomplishment ,and are interested in good breeding, I would get their impressionable minds on de bono,and on personal growth arts (actually creating things,not afmiring existing art...) and notice the persona differences between arts school.kids and academic schizoids.

The foundation work to Dr de Bono's Lateral Thinking and Parallel Thinking. A step by step and comprehensive account of how the brain creates mind as a self-organising information system. I bought this book in the early seventies and find it as relevant today as it was then: indeed more so today than then because my understanding has grown since the seventies. I go back to this book time and time again as a fascinating and original source of insights and explanations of how the mind works. The book uses models and illustrations. To gain an understanding of how our own mind works is the most important step we can ever take.

Good book, nice recommendations to improve conversation and listening skills. Highly recommended to have it as a reference book. Debono did it again.

visualization of the working of mind is achieved through simple imagery models that lead to understanding the work of insight in forming efficient patterns
As a fan of Edward de Bono and his innovative and important thinking methods I was very disappointed with this book and found much of the content to be very obvious and not very interesting... in fact the best bit for me was his summary of the Six Hats thinking method !
