Read detailed post on this book

Nobody likes settling on intense decisions, since we figure they will include trade-offs. However, imagine a scenario where you don’t have to make trade-offs by any means. Imagine a scenario in which you could go with two different ideas to make a solution that is superior to both. At that point, you would be applying integrative thinking. 

Roger first presented this integrative thinking methodology in his book, The Opposable Mind. In Creating Great Choices, he and Jennifer Riel tell the best way to apply this sort of thinking practically. Using a four-step technique for creating great choices, just as stories and activities that show the ideas in real life, they give everything readers require to find a “third and better way” when confronted with unsuitable trade-offs.
