Having said that, it is a passable introduction to all of the authors, who have a lot more to say in their own books and publications.
I first came to this collection through the book This Will Make You Smarter, a collection of predominantly 2-page essays from some of the world's greatest thinkers on all sorts of issues.
The discussions are challenging, thought-provoking and interesting and make me revisit what it is I know or think I know - and Thinking is much the same.
These should be in the school curriculum - they are the cutting edge of thinking.
It was nice to have a more conversational tone. You get a good feeling of the interactions and sometimes disagreements between the different researchers.
