Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Based on a television series produced for PBS, this lively exploration of creativity includes exercises and practices meant to encourage its liberation. A BOMC alternate in cloth and a QPB main selection. Illustrations.

From School Library Journal

YA-- This companion to the 1992 PBS series examines the nature of creativity, its manifestation in children and in the workplace, and its use in solving problems. The content is focused and authoritative, with many applications. The importance of intuition, thinking skills, risk taking, problem solving, and teamwork is stressed. Appropriate exercises encourage readers to discover their own creative spirit, but they are interspersed in sidebars throughout the book and are distracting as the text is often continued many pages later. However, overall, the suitable mix of readable text and varied, colorful illustrations make this an inviting work. Teachers and parents will find it especially useful, but the illustrations, sidebars, and quotations will draw students' interest.

I love love love this book. I read it almost 20 years ago in college and the ideas behind fostering your creativity have stayed with me. I recently gave it as a gift to a college student who is interested in creativity.
