He shows: ¢ how to overcome the four main obstacles to developing a balanced problem solving style ¢ how to manage the relationship between problem solving style and stress ¢ how to use physical movement as an aid to problem solving. A unique feature of the book is a Problem Solving Styles Profile that enables each reader to apply the material in the text to improve their own problem solving capability.
