      The Opposable Mind: How Successful Leaders Win Through Integrative
      Thinking

      Roger Martin. Harvard Business, $26.95 (212p) ISBN 9781422118924

      In this primer on the problem-solving power of "integrative thinking,"
      Martin draws on more than 50 management success stories, including the
      masterminds behind The Four Seasons, Proctor & Gamble and eBay, to
      demonstrate how, like the opposable thumb, the "opposable
      mind"—Martin's term for the human brain's ability "to hold two
      conflicting ideas in constructive tension"—is an intellectually
      advantageous evolutionary leap through which decision-makers can
      synthesize "new and superior idea[s]." Using this strategy, Martin
      focuses on what leaders think, rather than what they do. Among
      anecdotes and examples steering readers to change their thinking about
      thinking, Martin gives readers specific strategies for understanding
      their own "personal knowledge system" (by parsing inherent qualities
      of "stance," "tools" and "experience"), as well as for taking
      advantage of the "richest source of new insight into a problem," the
      "opposing model." Each of the eight chapters is well organized, making
      for a clear and cumulative read. Part inspiration, part logic lesson,
      this title will provide fresh perspective for anyone prepared to dust
      off her thinking cap. (Dec.)
