The 5 Elements To Effective Thinking – Book Review and Giveaway

Beating your learning curve can open up many doors to learn new and exciting things you never knew you were capable of. The 5 Elements To Effective Thinking presents a practical method of increasing your comprehension and learning abilities. The book is authored by Edward B. Burger and Michael Starbird and consists of five chapters. Each chapter represents the elements needed for effective thinking. Earth, Air, Fire and Water are used in an honest and realistic approach to changing how you think and achieve your goals.

  • Earth: Do I have a deep understanding of a subject?
  • Water: Have I acknowledged and immersed myself in the flow of ideas?
  • Air: Am I asking the right questions?
  • Fire: What do I do if I fail?
  • Change: Can I make the necessary changes to think better?

The final chapter, labeled as the Quintessential Element covers how each person can individually improve their thought process in order to apply the practices presented in the other chapters. The 5 Elements of Effective thinking delves deep into the human thought process and provides a comprehensive method of changing this process for the better. If you want to learn new things that you never thought you were capable of, this book tells you exactly how to use what you already know. You can then fill in those empty spaces to better understand and learn things you may have once thought were too complicated.

I recommend this book to anyone interested in increasing their abilities or overcoming mental hurdles they once thought were impossible. The 5 Elements of Effective Thinking is published by Princeton and has received great reviews. One of which comes from a former NASA employee. If you want to honestly approach your learning curve, the book is available on Amazon as well as other select retailers.

  12. The book offers real-life stories, explicit action items, and concrete methods that allow you to attain a deeper understanding of any issue, exploit the power of failure as a step toward success, develop a habit of creating probing questions, see the world of ideas as an ever-flowing stream of thought, and embrace the uplifting reality that we are all capable of change.
