What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Smart Thinking not only enriches the literature on human thought—and its foibles—it takes it to the next level, offering clear prescriptions for how to sharpen memory, analysis and creativity in our daily lives.”
—-Wray Herbert, author of On Second Thought: Outsmarting Your Mind's Hard-Wired Habits

It's a simple book that is easy to read, and easy to understand. Gives a lot of examples for the reader to understand such concepts as 'casual knowledge', 'smart habit', 'higher knowledge' and etc. I suggest it for those who want an understanding of their mind works. Even though this book has psychological concepts, it can be use towards business. It just depends on your 'smart thinking'.

Make sure you get a sample of the book to read. This free sample has not even half a page of the actual book. Not going to buy, can't tell if I would think it's useful.
