Overview

No matter what you do or where you are in life, the ability to think creatively is crucial for your success and survival. The more you develop your skills at creative thinking, the more you'll master your environment - whatever it may be.

Creative thinkers are all around you. People who juggle responsibilities and obligations. People who find ways to achieve a lot with minimum resources. People who use their talents to maximum effect. Creative thinking is the skill you need to overcome whatever stands between you and what you want to accomplish.

Creative thinkers will have an edge in the years ahead. Analytical thinking was once paramount, but now machines outperform most humans. But computers can't imagine; electronics can't think creatively. To compete and prosper, you need to develop and nurture your creativity.

Editorial Reviews

Myles Knapp
"It's my angry belief that most self-help and education book writers get paid by the word. Three and four hundred page books that could have been done better in 50 pages. Not so with "The Skinny On" series. These books kick rears and take names. Using entertaining writing, stick figure drawings and a comic book style layout, they use simple stories to quickly convey valuable information. Author Jim Randel has created one of the best, most interesting series I've seen in a very long time."

Meet the Author

The Skinny On book series was created by Jim Randel, an award-winning author.

Randel believes what numerous studies confirm: The Internet is changing how our brains process the written word. In short, the human brain reacts to its environment and changes accordingly over time. This phenomenon is called "plasticity."

The digital era has created a faster, more staccato, bottom-line and visual reading experience. And yet most non-fiction books are prepared in a format dating back to the 1700’s. This makes no sense.

The Skinny On books replicate the online reading experience. They are engineered so readers – in just an hour or two – can absorb and retain 90% of what they need about a given subject. For those who want to drill deeper, there is an extensive bibliography included with every book.

Readers from all across the world have been in touch with the publishers of The Skinny On books. The message is the same:

"In just an hour or so, I read your entire book and finally understand this subject. Most importantly, I remember the material much easier than with any other book. That, and I laughed out loud in the process."
