Review: Think Smarter: Critical Thinking to Improve Problem-Solving and Decision-Making Skills

Think Smarter: Critical Thinking to Improve Problem-Solving and Decision-Making Skills
Think Smarter: Critical Thinking to Improve Problem-Solving and Decision-Making Skills by Mike Kallet
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A lucid guide to effective problem-solving and result-oriented thinking.

A book that offers instruction to think smarter can give one pause. Isn’t thinking smart? Is there a secret to thinking that can make it smarter?

What Mike Kallet offers in this helpful guide is a way to organize and structure one’s thinking. He provides a process – arguably as old as the teachings of Socrates – distilled to the essentials that support goal-oriented thought and action. It isn’t magic, or any esoteric secret sauce, but clarity, specificity, and a rigorous exploration of a multitude of perspectives. And, he offers this learning in a structured, succinct guide.

Veterans of industry will recognize the guide as a collection of best practices developed over time for effective meetings, management of teams, and leadership. The steps in the book are thus common sense to those so trained.

To all others, this book can be an invaluable guide – to organization and streamlining of thought.
