By Julie Ann Dawson VINE VOICE on February 20, 2013
Format: Paperback
I am a pretty hardcore gamer of both video games and pen-and-paper gaming, and I enjoy learning about the early pioneers in the industry. For folks that don't know, David Judd Nutting is one of those pioneers who helped birth the video game industry through his work with Midway. So I was very interested in reading Secrets to a Creative Mind.

After reading all of these glowing reviews and the review from Kirkus, I have to wonder if these people read the same book that I did. Mr. Nutting fluctuates between lucid explanation and the ramblings of a bitter man. There are instances in the book where he explains a complicated idea in an elegant way, and other times when he descends into the trappings of someone who feels as if he was cheated by a society that never recognized how brilliant he is.

Of particular note is the truly bizarre attack the author makes on Microsoft in his Postface, which just seems so out of place with the rest of the book's focus. The poor attempts at poetry (or "rap rhyme" as the author calls it) are off-putting and amateurish. They are a self-inflicted distraction from the author's more interesting points.

The book reads like one long essay. The author makes a lot of statements of fact and throws out a variety of facts and figures, but doesn't support those statements by citing any sources. There is a list of Further Reading at the end of the book, but it is unclear if these books were his reference material or if it is just a list of recommendations (as one of the books listed is another self-published book by the author, I have to assume the latter).

Sadly, this book could have been wonderful. It is obvious that Mr.

The author provides his secrets to his success. We can find our creativity using a few "tricks" that he describes in his book. He even provides a reason for napping at work. How bad can that be?

In my earlier years a must read book for anyone wanting to improve their lives was “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill a book that became the bestselling book of all time. Hill developed laws and principles for success but never explained how a “thought” can make you rich. Now 60 years later Secrets to a Creative Mind explains in detail how a “thought” can make you successful and perhaps rich. We are the sum of all our life experiences that reside in our subconscious mind. Secrets to a Creative Mind reveals that a thought can be implanted into your subconscious mind and become another experience. Your thoughts on your aspirations and goals in life can be your silent partner residing in your subconscious mind guiding you through everyday life. You can become the master of your mind. Secrets to a Creative Mind is a must read for anyone wanting to improve their lives, especially the young professionals just starting life. As CEO of a small company I will be giving a copy of Secrets to a Creative Mind to each of my 40 employees.

I really wanted to like Secrets to a Creative Mind, however I felt Nutting placed too much emphasis on himself and his accomplishments than on educating the reader on how his technique can be used in their own lives. I wish he had spent more time talking about how to apply these techniques he talks about to actual situations in the real world. I feel he could have gone more into depth and used actual real life experiences. Instead what it boils down to in the end is basically mediation and this is nothing new for me. After having already read many books on meditation that actually go in-depth on how to achieve that state I was left deflated. What about those who have trouble staying awake during meditation, does his technique still work for them? When does one begin to apply the self talk, before meditation is achieved, during? Should one not apply positive self talk all day, instead of only during meditation? He could have stood out more from the crowd and gave instructions on how one can accomplish meditation, when one is under stress, anxiety or ADHD and cannot concentrate long enough to maintain meditation in the first place.

There is some interesting information presented here on Quantum physics and how the brain and thought process works. I also agree with him on how we learn more from blunders than from accomplishments. I do understand when he talks about how the subconscious mind goes over a previous learned experience and updates, which explains how many things including how learning is achieved.

Maybe it is just me since I already am familiar with most of this information, psychology, Quantum and how the mind reacts to certain situations including its storage of memory and thoughts.

I enjoyed this book, but not for the reasons one might think. This book is supposed to help you open your mind and be more of a creative thinker. I felt it was more of a memoir, with teachings of how the author found success, and believe me when I tell you he did.
I rather admire David Judd Nutting after reading this little book. There are so many points of his life that changed our societies and helped pivotally change how we do things. He was the creator of the first computer. Think today how many of us live our lives based around computers and what would we do now without them?
I also felt the main message to his success and the key points he was trying to instill in the reader, is meditation and empathy are what you have to have to move forward in life. You not only need to empathize with people, but inanimate objects as well. They way he explains it in the book, you understand why. It should be common knowledge that you need to talk to yourself. Whether you meditate or just take time for yourself via a bubble bath or something, you have to be able to clear your mind gutter and expand your thoughts. That is how conclusions are born.
So I think this is a great book, but honestly, unless you are interested in how the brain operates thoughts and memories, or have an interest in a pioneer of engineering, then this won't be for you.
