This book had lots of insights on ways to tackle problems in a creative fashion. Really, it boils down to how to do basically right brain activities. Although I thought the suggestions and approaches useful, I am sure some linear thinker is going to reject them as dumb.

Buy this book and keep it for ready reference whenever you need creative stimulation, much like that offered in Why Didn't I Think of That? - Think the Unthinkable and Achieve Creative Greatness.
