The director and founder of the National Institute for Straight Thinking launches this eighth book with new material. His failing- from the viewpoint of anyone who follows him closely, is that successive books have rehashed his twelve rules for straight thinking, his principles on achieving successful human relations, his basic laws on problem solving, etc. Now comes a book two thirds of which provides a challenge to executives, junior executives, heads of businesses, and anyone whose job entails creative thinking, to cut working hours until they approach the most productive ideal of four hours a day. He claims thereby that people can increase their creative powers, achieve their maximum results, and find greater satisfaction and personal growth. He charts the steps for approaching the goal. Then shortly he shifts gears and is back on his tried and proved track. Pep talk-at not too deep a level. There are usable ideas here, if you've not read the other books.
