BOOKCASE : Thinkertoys: A Handbook of Creative-Thinking Techniques

Michael Michalko • Ten Speed Press • $44.99

The content is great but the tone just grates. Thinkertoys is pretty straightforward. How to redefine questions, challenge assumptions, think intuitively: in short, all the skills that enable some people to see things that others can’t.
The book is jam packed with drawings, teasers and mind-benders. It’s an easy read. Shame, then, that the book is so immensely annoying. Hijacked by an American Reader’s Digest world view full of bouncy sentences and an everlasting supply of happy endings, it made me long for complexity, shades of meaning and everything else that makes our world sane, real and believable. Grrrh!
