By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 27, 1999
Format: Paperback
I am a management consultant for major corporations and also write business books. My clients frequently ask me to help them understand how to make their companies more creative. Almost all books on this subject ignore the influence of other people on the creative person. Teresa Amabile does just the opposite, and puts creativity into a context to explain how to establish a creative environment for everyone. This book is an update of her earlier work, and the additions are very valuable. If you are a business person who wants to learn how to grow sales and profits faster, you need to understand the lessons in this book. She wrote a summary of this book recently in HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW that you may want to read, also. CORPORATE CREATIVITY is another good book on this subject.

This is an updated classic that any creativity researcher should have on their shelf. It may seem dry to most but it's packed with fantastic information that articulates the need to look at creativity as a social phenomena, not an individual one. I'm an academic so I don't want fluff I want the research, this book does that. It's not written like journal articles so any person can pick it up and read it, I'm just warning that this book is about the research, not some anecdotal stories that follow the author's experiences of "being creative"
