I have no problem to apprehend the wisdom of Fitzgerald that "The test of a first rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing ideas in mind at the same timeand still retain the ability to function. One should, for example, be able to see that things are hopeless yet be determined to make them otherwise.". However, I really cant appreciate the author's elaboration and modification of the above into his "Integrative Thinking and Opposable Mind" terminology and modelling, which to me are common practice of scholars to add to their collection of research papers with little value at all. Sorry to say that even de Bono's books can help more. In short, not recommended.

It would have been a 3-star book if it were published 10-15 years ago... There is not a single interesting or new idea in this book. And the model that is presented in the book loosely connects some elements of creative thinking and action and tries to demonstrate it with poor examples. If you are a new graduate starting your career, you may find a few things, perhaps, that are useful, but otherwise it's not worth spending your time.
