What a fantastic book - if your boss have ever asked you to think outside the square or be more innovative or try to solve a problem that seems impossible - then read this book. You will never use your senses the same way again.

It does not matter if you are a designer, a writer, an engineer, a programmer, an employee or a boss, a student or a teacher - this book is for everybody

Great for beginners and old hands. Dip in and out or read in one binge - again and again.

A must-read book on creative tools in self development for knowledge workers, managers, executives, and entrepreneurs.
This was a pretty cool book, written by Sam Harrison.

I am only 4 chapters into this book, but I really love it! It was recommended to me from a collague I have great respect for. It is not a traditional read. The back of the book describes it well as "interviews, quotes, tips, creative exercises and success stories". As an artist and teacher, I find all of the above helpful and motivating. :) You can borrow my copy when I am done!

Ideaspotting is a fairly short read and focuses on presenting different ways to arrive at creative ideas. The book is written in an anecdotal style recounting how different people in creative industries come up with ideas.

I don't suggest buying the book, however, if you borrow it from a library maybe give it a read.

Bite size nuggets on business creativity. Enough for a taste, but ultimately not very filling.
Good resource to have for brainstorming meetings, or when you're thinking.
Mark Fallon
An excellent guidebook for creative thinking
Concise and effective
