17 Down, 35 To Go "Problem Solving 101" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

A bestseller in Japan, Problem Solving 101: A Simple Book for Smart People was written for Japanese schoolchildren with the goal of increasing their critical thinking skills. Surprisingly, the book became a hit with adult readers as well.

I chose this book as much for myself as for my wife, who is midway through a doctoral program and always looking for ways to increase her study skills. We both found the book useful, the problem solving skills are simply presented but elegant enough for adults to enjoy as well as children. Truly a book for all ages and filled with fun illustrations to demonstrate its principles, Problem Solving 101 is the rare book that is as entertaining as it is instructive.
