Few people devote time to think about, or to improve, their thinking processes, preferring, instead, to focus on outcomes decisions, plans, conclusions, and judgments that so preoccupy the North American psyche This fixation on the latter stages of thinking is backwards and responsible, in large part, for results that are not always optimal.Think Well Prosper providFew people devote time to think about, or to improve, their thinking processes, preferring, instead, to focus on outcomes decisions, plans, conclusions, and judgments that so preoccupy the North American psyche This fixation on the latter stages of thinking is backwards and responsible, in large part, for results that are not always optimal.Think Well Prosper provides insights into the structure of thinking It breaks down analyses the thinking process into understandable steps and sequences that each of us can easily follow if we so choose And the steps and sequences aren t particularly complicated The trouble with thinking better is simply that most people don t really know what is involved to do it effectively Many people think thinking just happens organically and that we can do it better by bearing down or by thinking harder whatever that means.A very important point, right from the start thinking is not the same as intelligence Thinking well is a skill that can be learned, practiced, and improved It s comparable to getting your body in shape No one doubts that physical conditioning requires time to learn routines it s the same with thinking, except they are mental routines But, if you don t know what you don t know, you can t really do them.Many of us learn the thinking processes and routines as we progress through life, or if we pursue higher education where educators nudge us to develop higher order th

  2. In a world full of books that mostly entertain but that teach little of real value, this creation really stands out I was forced to deal with critical thinking in university, but those books were tedious and extremely heavy to read This one is different because it s written understandably and in an entertaining style If you aren t fully up on how the thinking process works, your life results may be suffering Do yourself a favor and spend a few nights on this book s content If you read it to real [...]


  3. There are many self help books on the market, but few are helpful than those that help you make better decisions and problem solve effectively This book details how to systematically approach any situation that requires good results It breaks down how we think and offers a step by step system that can be easily remembered and followed Just the section on interpretation and analysis are well worth the read, not to mention a hundred other pages with solid ideas Give this to your kids
