When Edward de Bono pioneered the concept of 'lateral thinking' he started a quiet revolution in thinking that has now spread across the world. He was twenty years ahead of the times when he put forward the idea of the brain as a self organising system in 1969. This is now mainstream thinking
It is all too easy to complain, protest, grumble, criticize and attack. Traditional revolutions define an enemy and seek to overthrow that enemy. When you have got rid of the bad things then all is supposed to turn out well.
There are many people who have always felt that negativity is not enough. They see the need to be constructive and to contribute towards making things happen. These are the people who will welcome the Positive Revolution. This challenging book provides a practical framework for a serious revolution which has no enemies but seeks to make things better.
The hand symbolises the five basic principles of the Positive Revolution: thumb for effectiveness, index finger to point the constructive way forward, middle finger for human values, ring finger for self-improvement and little finger for contribution - to remind us that even a small contribution is better that endless criticism.
