Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A classic besteller that presents de Bono's model of the mind, which remains as insightful as it was when first published in 1969

The Mechanism of Mind presents Edward de Bono’s original theories on how the brain functions, processes information, and organizes 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 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. Drawing on colorful visual imagery to help explain de Bono's theories and thought-processes, from light bulbs and sugar cubes to photography and water erosion, this book is a must-read for anyone who wants to gain a greater understanding of how the mind works and organizes information—and how Edward de Bono came to develop his creative thinking tools.

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).
