Another brilliant, accessible, generous and insightful book from Michael Gelb. Creativity on Demand draws on wisdom and knowledge from many sources, new, old, great and obscure, and presents them with humor and lightheartedness, leaving the reader with easy to apply methods to understand and develop their creative process and apply it to all areas of life.
