“The 5 Elements of Effective Thinking” is written by by Edward B. Burger and Michael Starbird. I have listened to the audio version of this book. The authors present an approach to effective thinking with 5 parts – fire, earth, water, air and change. “Fire, Earth, Water and Air” are concerned with how to effectively challenge a notion and actively participate in questioning an approach (like “what if”,”what’s correct”, “what’s wrong”). Through this inquiry one could try to challenge and solve problems. One should be willing to “change” to develop this inquiry mindset.
Rating: 3/5. The ideas presented are well known already. The presentation of book is good and concise.
