Review

"This book is important not only because it delves into the creative process, but also because Nachmanovitch creates the opportunity for the reader to get in touch with her/his own creative possibilities and abilities."

--"Harvard Educational Review"

"Stephen Nachmanovitch has produced a celebration of human uniqueness. What it amounts to is a guide for getting the most out of whatever is possible

--"Norman Cousins, author of The Anatomy of an Illness" --This text refers to the mp3_cd edition.
