Become a Better Brainstormer

Lateral Thinking: Creativity Step by Step by Edward De Bono. ISBN 0-06-090325-2. Great names often involve out-of-nowhere thinking, and this is the first book to have explained how to think sideways and let your thoughts jump from stone to seemingly disconnected stone. Useful.  Learn more or order now.

Creative Whack Pack by Roger Von Oech. ISBN 0-88079-358-9. Easier to use during a brainstorming session than a book, this is a pack of cards which each carry a reminder of a method of coming up with a fresh idea. Handy!  (P.S. I've used Tarot cards for this purpose, too.)  Learn more or order now.

Thinkpak: A Brainstorming Card Deck by Michael Michalko. ISBN 0-89815-607-6. Like Von Oech's Whack Pack, above, this is a pack of cards for stimulating brainstorming.
