Nussbaum, teacher, journalist, and editor, began covering design and innovation in the 1990s and indicates he and others in the first decade of the twentieth century moved beyond “design thinking” to explore creativity. Listening to his students prompted him to consider creativity “as something you might train for, as a skill that could be accessed.” Advising the need for “a new way of thinking, communicating, and creating,” the author offers “Five Competencies of Creative Intelligence,” which include “Knowledge Mining,” or using our own experiences and aspirations to envision new companies and technologies; “Framing,” or being aware of our own view of the world so that we can compare it to the views of others; and “Playing,” because Nussbaum suggests a playful mindset leads to a willingness to take risks, explore more options, and navigate through uncertainty without fearing failure. He concludes, “The biggest challenge we face is our own fear of creativity . . . . We can all be creative.” Thought-provoking insight on the important topic of creativity. --Mary Whaley

I bought this book as a part of my branding graduate program reading, but it has turned out to be a keeper for future references. I also had the opportunity to meet with the author, which was indeed a thought-provoking experience.
