This is a book that is any creative’s tool guide. It won’t teach you how to be creative. But it will ‘protect’ you from everything that is keeping your creativity from flourishing. A must read!

If you’ve ever felt insecure about your creative capacities, this book is definitely a helpful tool. The title couldn’t make its thesis more clear, the book intends on extracting the readers inborn creativity by way of simple yet practical exercises. It’s tailored to people living in this fast-paced world, so the book’s language, format and even font all work together to create a quick and concise read. The exercises are condensed to make them manageable in even the busiest of schedules. This bo ...more

Although the subject matter of this guide can be a matter of concern for many, the author manages to approach it genuinely and lightheartedly while adding her own expertise. The book’s nurturing tone relieves the readers from the pressure of achieving results. Instead, they are encouraged to try out the tools on their own terms, making those tools very effective.

This book is an excellent guide for anyone who is seeking to awaken the creative side to themselves. As creativity is a key component to success in any field of business, these helpful tools are easy to follow but also very inspirational. I highly recommend this book for anyone who needs just the right amount of motivation to start a new project that has been flitting around in your head, but hasn't really become a reality. ...more

Harness your creativity is a must read. Nadia connects by sharing her personal story and 8 practical steps to discover, nourish, believe, and use creativity. I started implementing the steps and I easily reconnected with my creative essence. My first success story was recording videos and creating content. As easy as it might appear, this was one of my major challenges. I used to believe I am not that creative. After I read this book, I rapidly changed my belief because the steps were so easy to ...more

I don't usually read this type of books.
However, Nadia Tabbara mixes her own observations and studies with psychology and neuroscience to come up with eight steps that can increase one's creativity. Of course, she starts with the belief that everyone already HAS creativity, and these steps are a few effective methods to help raise that creativity to the surface. I've found that many of the steps made great sense, both practically and psychologically. They are processes that can be applied to any

I loved the fact that the book starts with acknowledging everyone's creativity. It encourages us to be even more creative than we already are. This is one step further in the writing process and I personally think it's the key for moving forward in writing. The way it's written is simple, doesn't need a prerequisite or anything. Anyone can read it which makes it even more beautiful. and I believe that reading it affects our lifestyle positively, pushes us forward in Life as well as in Writing. ...more

I'm reading this book as if I was talking to a friend: that is the good friend, the one who is always available when you need a hand. Nadia Tabbara writes easy, clearly, and gives funny and concrete tools for everybody who wants to write Novels, short stories, or work emails. This is useful, and you'll see the impact in your writing. ...more

This book is a gem. It helps not only to exercise your creativity, but also to become more efficient in the workplace, to enhance your decision making process and to better understand & evaluate your relationships. I read it in one sitting and will surely refer back to the tools Nadia shared with us in such a smart and simple way. I highly recommend it.

Many books have been written about the craft of writing. But what truly sets this book apart from the rest is its unique take on writing: it examines the process instead of capturing the moment of creation itself.

The book sets out to be exactly what it is: a tool. It is brutally honest in its approach toward the craft of writing and everything that accompanies it, all the while offering witty and clever advice to the engaged reader.

A must-read for aspiring and enthusiastic writers. A grabbing re

The book manages to quantify and systematically breakdown the obstacles and hurdles that can block us from achieving our creative potential. Through the use of the tools proposed by the author, the reader is given a shortcut to what otherwise could be a lengthy journey into self discovery and social norms breakdown. Designed as a practical guide, the reader is better served when approaching it with a predisposition to go through the motions and to apply the tasks.
As someone who has undergone sel

Just finished reading this book and I want to give my honest review!
To be honest, this is one of my favorite books, I was really motivated to develop my ideas and bring them to life instead of ignoring them. (Yes, I used to ignore my ideas thinking that they are not creative or interesting enough, I was afraid of doing something & be rejected).
I really recommend reading this book as it helped me on a personal and professional level.

First off, it's a MUST read. This book has to be part of "The Essential Creativity Package" that any person should have when they set off on their own creative journey!

As a person who loves to write stories, I always kept an eye on writing workshops and bought books that had to do with creative writing. At some point, that made me feel stuck, molded into a box, unable to unchain myself from the author/trainer's rules, for years. I lost the interest in attending workshops and buying writing books

I cannot begin to express how wonderful this book is- but I will start off by saying, this is an essential addition to everyone's bookshelves, not only writers or "creatives." After all, repeatedly through the book, the author asserts that everyone is creative, and she does so in a way that by the time you're done reading, you believe it yourself.

The book is broken down into helpful sections, each focusing on a part of the creative process, with exercises to help drive the point home. Whatever y
