Should have read the small print

De Bono is brilliant - but carefully read the description to check if this is what you are looking for. It is not read by the author and is certainly not one of his inspirational lectures - rather a workshop presented by third parties.

I guess I shouldn't have expected much in 1 hour.

As the book is only one hour long, I expect (hope) that there is more to DeBono's teachings on creativity than the scant intro provided in this audiobook. I certainly can't say that I have any deeper understanding of creativity and thinking after listening to this. It's too brief to be much more than an ad for his seminars. The book does introduce you to DeBono's Body Framework, in which different thought processes or steps are described in analogy to different body parts and systems (bones = structure of the situation; muscles = goals and effort; nerves = networks of connections; fat = irrelevant ideas; skin = presentation to others; health = utility of the solution). The analogies to body parts seems rather stretched, not always making the idea or concept any clearer. Overall, if you don't expect to get much out of this short book (other than to get a vague idea of De Bono's theses), you won't be disappointed. BTW, De Bono is NOT the narrator.

Excellent but requires more stories and anectodes. The interchange in narration is brilliant.

I would have appreciated more practice techniques
