So I just finished the Productivity & Effectiveness category of my crazy Personal MBA Challenge. Here is the list of the ten books with a quick resume and what I think about it so you can know in a glance if this book can be helpful for you 😉 .
One Sentence Summary:
Creativity is learned, nourished and maintained; for inspiration to flow through us and spring forth from the mind, you must prepare, have rituals that invoke it, to know our creative DNA – what we are made for, use our memory and connect disparate things with each other, organize work documents so that we always know where to find them, know how to scratch the surface of things to extract the essential, use the accidents and incidents that that appear in our life, have an idea-base which serves as a backbone for our creation, use our talents wisely, recognize roadblocks and the moments that overtake us, know how to fail, and pace ourselves over the long term – to the very end.
Good book, in which the pleasant format judiciously adds value to the contents.
Packed with ideas, tricks and ways to develop and maintain creativity.
Full of practical exercises and practially inexhaustible.
Twyla Tharp tells us about numerous relevant personal experiences
A bit too much emphasis on purely artistic creativity.
Some passages are not believable showing a certain lack of scientific knowledge in the author.
Book is a bit too packed and crowded at times.
My score :
