"Types of Thinking" provides a basic grounding in the psychology of thinking for undergraduate students with little previous knowledge of cognitive psychology. This clear, well-structured overview explores the practical aspects and applications of everyday thinking, creative thinking, logical and scientific thinking, intelligent thinking and machine thinking. It also explores "failures of thinking," the slips of action that can lead to plane crashes and industrial accidents. Influences on decision-making such as motivation, arousal and emotion are examined, as well as the differences between "deep" and "surface" thought, "lateral" thinking, and the effect of negative transfer. Written in an accessible and engaging style, "Types of Thinking" will be attractive to students and teachers of psychology as well as to the lay reader.
