Book Helps Parents Cope with Back-to-School Stresses

Published September 1, 2006

As families everywhere ramp up to the hectic back-to-school pace, all parents can use a healthy dose of “clear thinking” to make their way through the clutter and information overload.

According to Joe LoCicero, co-author of The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Clear Thinking, focus, clarity, and powerful thinking can be a part of every interaction and communication, once we understand the processes of thinking, logic, and reasoning. The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Clear Thinking helps readers tap into their innate brain power and improve their decision-making, problem-solving, and communication skills.

The book offers various brainpower-boosting strategies, including a multitude of word games and problems, quizzes, analogies, and brain teasers to help readers flex their mental muscles and apply clear-thinking skills in everyday situations.

The authors offer expert advice on how to apply logic and reasoning to form well-thought-out opinions, show readers how to use clear thinking to define problems, and identify the techniques needed to solve the problems. Readers also learn how to translate thoughts into clear communication, gather facts from a variety of resources, and become better listeners.
