De Bono's seminal book on how perceptions are central to our thinking and hinder in more ways than one the advance of humankind and progress.Language with all its advantages is highly inaccurate in expressing things as they are and rather effectively creates a perception in the mind which may or may not be what it actually is.


Language is just a medium and its accuracy depends highly on how we perceive a thought and use that medium to express it..unless we fine tune our own thought process and accomodate fine nuances in language, emotional inaccuracies arising due to language inaccuracy will be there :)


Sometimes laguage becomes a barrier since it may not have the right words to express something and hence communication is a big challenge for humans.
