Attention is a key part of thinking clearly and productively, and yet we pay very little attention to attention itself. If you see someone lying injured in the middle of the road, for example, your attention would go to that person but, if a bright pink dog wandered past at the same time, your attention would automatically stray to the dog. That is precisely the weakness of attention - it is pulled to the unusual. How much attention do we pay to the usual?

So, what can we do about it? Instead of waiting for attention to be pulled towards something unusual, we can set out frameworks for 'directing' our attention in a conscious manner. Just as we can decide to look north, west or even south-east, so we can set up a framework for directing our attention, and that's where Edward de Bono's 'six frames' come in. Each frame is a direction or method in/with which to look, based on a different shape - triangle, circle, heart, square, diamond, slab.

Today we are literally surrounded by information and it has never been so easy to obtain. Yet, information itself is not enough; it's how we look at it that really counts. Using the 'six frames' technique is the key to extracting real value from the masses of facts and figures out there and, like all de Bono's techniques, it is simple, effective and will utterly change the way you interpret information.

Book Description Trade Paperback. Condition: New. Illustrated (illustrator). First Edition. First edition. 8vo. Trade paperback, 127 pp. In a world saturated with facts and figures, how do we focus our attention to make the most of the enormous amount of information at our fingertips? The originator of "lateral thinking," physician and psychologist Edward de Bono here offers a method of consciously directing our own attention. Just as we can choose to look north, west, or southeast, says de Bono, we can also set up a framework for directing our attention using six pictographic frames, in the shapes of a triangle, circle, heart, square, diamond, and slab. Here he presents his simple and effective technique, promising to forever change the way you interpret information. New. Seller Inventory # 014664
