What the Critics Say

"A very useful book...Dr. de Bono does not claim to be able to turn us all into Miltons, da Vincis, and Einsteins...but his techniques provide an alternative to just sitting around waiting for the Muse to appear." (David Cohen, Times Educational Supplement)

Poor narration

de Bono may have some good ideas contained in this book but I found Zimbalist's narration so appallingly bad that I could not bear listening right the way through. I have now listened to many audiobooks, with various narrators but this one is the worst! caveat emptor.
