He provides a new perspective on concentration by defining it as the process of persistently moving towards a well-defined objective rather than fixating one's thought on a static object. He also provides interesting discussions on debate/conversation, prejudice/uncertainty, reading and writing to help thinking. His list of further reading material in the last chapter of the book is of great value, even a century after it was written, which also indicates the long lasting value of this great piece of work.
This book is my primary travel companion, and it succeeds in provoking new thoughts almost every time I skim through it. Thus, I recommend it to all those who wish to make better use of the "human machine" :)
PS - Later on (53 years after its publication), Hazlitt has written of his thoughts on how to improve upon this book. An outline of these thoughts are presented in "The wisdom of Henry Hazlitt", pp 45-78, which is available online at [...]
Have you ever thought about how you should read a book and what is the best method in by which knowledge can be obtained from it? In Thinking as a Science, Hazlitt provides some great answers (and practical methods) exactly for such questions. The chapter "Thinking and Reading" is quite illuminating and highly recommended for the serious reader. Only this chapter is well worth the entire book.
Although, overall this book is far from being perfect, a few chapters in the book are worth the time and a lot of good thinking techniques can be obtained from them .As a follow-up, highly recommended reading is Elementary Lessons in Logic: Deductive and Inductive by William Stanley Jevons.
