I like this book very much because of its broad coverage and yet penetrating insights about creativity. To be more precise, it's about visual perceptual thinking - the often untapped resource mode of our brain. It is an excellent resource - not only from the visual thinking perspective but - for those who wants a deeper, fundamental understanding about whole-brain thinking. Unlike Kurt Hanks' books, and ironically, it's full of heavy text. Nevertheless, it's worth your perusal and also for having it in your personal library. The author had a second book, a strategy manual, which, unfortunately, is now out of print.
This book has some innovative ways to look at design in general and the process of solving design problems in the designing of products. I met the author and he is both a creative artist an an engineer - really a smart guy and very right brain/left brain. So I wanted his book as a continuation of the conversation.
Offers activities & processes to go through in order to brain storm & improve creativity. Many excellent ideas. My only complaint is that the text utilizes language that makes what they are trying to express difficult to understand & hard to follow.
