THE SOUNDVIEW REVIEW:
Creativity is often mislabeled as a mysterious force. The concept dates back to ancient history when poets and musicians were beholden to muses or gods for moments of creative brill ...more
Here is the strengths of the boo:
1. It provides a system for thinking creatively. The premise of the book (which I fully agree with) is that if we have a system for creativity then we don't have to think creatively about how to be creative. So often truly creative people fail to move out of the realm of ideas and into the realm of making their ideas happen. This book provid ...more

I know its usually good to draw from your own experiences and and convey those experiences though storytelling, but in Disciplined Dreaming i felt like a lot of it was a sales pitch for why ePrize was so great. The references to jazz music also started to drag on and found a way to seep its way into every ...more
The author is speaking at a conference I'm attending later this year and I look forward to that presentation.
