And, guaranteed, you will have the time to digest this food for thought, as each and every chapter requires slow and careful reading. If the writing were to be any denser, it would tear free from the pages and sink to the very center of the Earth! Yet, there is so much information that, in the end, the knowledge derived is more than worth the work needed to get at it.
One last note: This is a handbook for those interested in the deep research on creativity. It is NOT suitable a "first book" for anyone starting out to learn about creativity!
The book does not give mere descriptions on the scope of creativity but it provides great amount of knowledge on the evolutionary process of creativity research from ancient times up to today! Furthermore, the subject of creativity has been examined both from theoretical and methodological perspective in such a creative manner which gives a very good knowledge about the major approaches, the outcomes of the previous researchs, main obstacles in the course of investigation, and finally the probable studies for further research on the creativity.
Consequently, the reader finds a good chance not only to have a detailed theoretical and practical information on the subject but also to learn the main approaches of outstanding social scientists towards the subject and not mentioning about the meticoulisly prepared bibliography.
I am amazed with the intensity of Dr.Sternberg's study the language of which is clear enough those of us whose Mother tongue is not English (like me!).
