I was disappointed in some ways by this book: I couldn't but help and think of De Bono and his TO LO PO SO GO....a five-step process that encapsulates much of what has been said recently about getting there - whether that be creative thinking or implementing corporate strategy. Understand the TOwards point, LOok around, POssibilities...etc. It's a solid framework but hardly something must of us don't understand intuitively anyway.
While that lack of freshness might be an issue, there's no doubt that the book does offer value if you're coming at this without much in the way of previous training in creativity: suggestions to 'abosrob lots of information', 'see things in new ways', etc are all pretty much the de rigeur recommendations of creativity authors. And, at something like one of those ideas per page, the book can feel a little 'light'.
Still, it's worth reading if you want a solid framework and something that you can dip into as a point of breaking thinking patterns that aren't working. But I was disappointed when I received the book and felt that I'd not received as much as I'd hoped for from this particular book.
