About Edward de Bono

de BonoEdward de Bono was born in Malta in 1933. He was a Rhodes Scholar at Christ Church, Oxford, gaining an honours degree in psychology and physiology and then a D.Phil in medicine. He also holds a Ph.D from Cambridge and an MD from the University of Malta.

Dr Edward de Bono is one of the very few people in history who can be said to have had a major impact on the way we think. The term 'lateral thinking' was introduced by him and is now so much part of the language.

In the University of Buenos Aires faculties use his books as required reading. In Venezuela, by law, all school children must spend an hour a week on his programmes. In the U.S.A., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the Republic of Ireland and the UK there are thousands of schools using Dr de Bono's programmes for the teaching of thinking.

de BonoDe Bono is the undisputed world leader in what may be the most important field of all in the future: constructive and creative thinking.

Traditional thinking is to do with analysis, judgment and argument. In a stable world this was sufficient because it was enough to identify standard situations and to apply standard solutions. This is no longer so in a changing world where the standard solutions may not work.

For many millions of people world-wide, Edward de Bono's name has become a symbol of creativity and new thinking.
