It was so exciting to see this book in print. We were "there" when it was just being developed and to see it finished is terrific. It's full of excellent ideas to help you get unstuck, no matter what field of endeavor you're trying to proceed in, not just for artists. There are interviews with creative people, which I like; for me different points of view are always interesting. The book is a nice size for carrying around like a journal, and is even set up so that you can use it as a workbook. I ...more

despite what the cover lead me to believe, the book is not about removal of chewing gum, caramels or other sticky substances from shoes, clothing and terrycloth. still, i was not disappointed.

every page is chock full of goodness to spark you creativity & get your creative juices flowing. noah has targeted the artsy reader with this book, but any primate can enjoy these projects to help them look at the world from a different angle, build a stronger bond with a friend or add an extra dose of

My copy came today and I couldn't put it down. I devoured it straight away. My husband and I just started a major project, and while we are definately thriving artistically right now, this will no doubt inspire us in other ways. I actually think this book is good for both times, when you are thriving and of course, when you are stuck.

Nonetheless, there’s not a creative person who hasn’t lost his or her inspiration at one time or another. Annoying? Yes. Excruciating? No doubt. But please, suffer

What's funny is that I read this at the same time I'm reading Jonah Lehrer's Imagine: How Creativity Works. This book is pretty contrived and most of the exercises are really terrible. It's all "change your perspective" type of stuff (which is a good thing, generally) but most of the actual tasks are just dumb. Read Imagine instead.

I'll admit that I haven't technically finished this book. I've checked it out from the library and renewed it at least once and am still running out of time to finish it. What I have read I've really enjoyed. So far my favorite ideas are 6 word memoirs, cloud shapes, and one called book worm where you go to a library/bookstore, follow directions to get a random sentence ( shelf 5, book two, page 15, sentence 1) and then use that sentence as inspiration for your current project. I would love to h ...more

One of those book/journal combos to get your creative flow moving in a size you can carry with you. No excuses - ideas you can do in 30 seconds to 30 minutes. For work, fun, art, writing, the 52 ideas turn this into a year long project. If that's not enough, follow his MakeSomething365.com.

I just finished reading through this book! As I read through it I flagged some of the activities that I definitely want to use when I get stuck with my own creativity. Thank you Noah for another great reference for helping keeping my creativity going!
