Overview

Edward De Bono believes in freedom, but poses the question: "If you cannot see clearly, are you making a free choice?" de Bono has devoted his life to bringing this question to his readers - business leaders, educators, and politicians among others - to fully realize that clarity of thinking is essential to a free society. It is not enough to simply be free from coercion. De Bono argues that there is no true freedom without the ability to see correctly the options we have, which requires thinking of a kind that De Bono says not the norm, and which urgently needs to be emphasized and taught.

de Bono uses anecdotes to convey his ideas, and provides numerous examples that illustrate his thesis ... to be free means to understand the choices we make, and understanding can only come through improving the way we think.
