As one of the world's most respected voices in the field of cognitive science, Art Markman has isolated a formula for thinking more effectively. The book is filled with specific suggestions and tips that you can use to create new habits to think better, starting literally from Chapter 1.
The advice on how to break bad and lazy thinking habits is interesting, and I've already used it to good effect . . . In summary, this is a thought-provoking read.
Smart Thinking not only enriches the literature on human thoughts - and its foibles - it takes it to the next level, offering clear prescriptions for how to sharpen memory, analysis and creativity in our daily lives.
The book is an easy read, though rewards re-reading. Unlike many of these "Think yourself smarter" books, this one has lots of good advice, and feels like it relies on primary sources more than secondary. In fact, I bet I end up reading a lot of what is in this book, taken out of context by "Think yourself successful" gurus. Save time, read it here, at the source.'
An essential read for anyone who wants to operate at their best, think outside the box and accomplish whatever goals they set out to achieve.
If you want to be more creative, if you want to be an innovator, this is the book for you.
