I am often defined by friends and colleagues as a "creative" though I work in the academic support side of higher education. I find myself relating to Seth Godin and Malcolm Gladwell more than Piaget and Vygotsky in my approach to life. This book is written for people like me.
If you identify as a "creative" an "artist" or an "idea person," I would certainly recommend this book to you. You can easily read through this is one sitting, maybe two. So if you want a quick and inspiring read with tangible takeaways, give this book a shot.
P.S. I did not give this book a 5/5 because of its eloquence or superior insights. Rather, I rated it based on what it attempted to be. Short, pithy, insightful, inspiring, and practical. It was all of those things, and a little more.
