Title: The 5 Elements of Effective Thinking
Author: Edward Burger and Michael Starbird

Some interesting points were made in this book, but mostly was a rehash of common ideas. Several years ago I may have rated the book higher, but now I found it very academic and student-focused. Just not what I was really looking for.

The Elements

  1. Learn from Fundamentals
  2. Make mistakes.
  3. Question everything
  4. Let ideas flow
  5. Embrace change

Overall, fairly stock standard stuff.

Check out Derek Sivers’ book notes if you want more detail. For what it’s worth he gave the book a 9/10.
