I'll explain; If you are remodeling your home (in this case our mind) and you go out to your local hardware store to pick up a book on remodeling. What kind of book would you think the average person in your situation would buy? The answer is a "How to" book. You want a book the teaches you exactly how to take apart your bathroom or kitchen and how to put it in your new pieces. You don't buy a book that tells you that you should remodel (you already know that, thats why your buying the book).
This book tells you to "think" then tells you why thinking is important from begining to end but only scratches the general surface on the "how." We obviously already know we should think and by investing in this literature clearly we acknowledge the value (duh).
There needs to be more practices, exercises, and real applicable examples of approaches for thr reader in common everyday scenarios.
Throughout the book there is also plenty of good quotes but these just become meaningless without a proper dissection and then again proposed real life application. This lack of explanation makes the reader feel as if he/she is reading a college term paper for a 6 week class.
In the end the book was not bad and it was filled with plenty of good "quotes" and general concepts but it never delivered what the title promises. Its best suited as a introduction to a real book on "How."
Thank you and good luck.
I used not to tolerate when somebody made a feedback to me.
After reading this book, it changed my mind a lot. The performance in my job is better and I feel comfortable when somebody speaks about it.

you can read it through fairly quickly and take something from it,the long term benefits would come from going over again some of the things you have read,well worth it.
