Travel code -- Code A.Cover title varies: The De Bono code book : going beyond the limits of language.Summary: Language has been the biggest help to human progress, but it has also become the barrier to its own development.

De Bono proposes two new code systems to allow us to design, hold and use complicated new ideas using number codes, which overcome the language barriers in anything from relationships to travel.
