In this context I wish to repeat my recommendation for Lisa Scheinkopfs
"Thinking for a Change".
Before going into the TOC thinking tools, she explains in detail the
basics of necessity based thinking and sufficiency based thinking and also
includes a chapter on what she calles "Categories of Legitimate
Reservations" as a way to self detect the logical fallacies in ones own
