"[The author] is an accomplished pianist who began performing at age 4 and, by age 11, had appeared on television. While at the Manhattan School of Music he became restless with his musical direction and began to explore jazz as new means of creativity and expression. Along his journey, he was inspired by masters of the craft to rethink not only the technical aspects of creativity, but also the spiritual aspects.

The concepts presented [in this book] are applicable to every profession, aspiration, or lifestyle where there is a need for free-flowing, effortless thinking"--Back cover of book.
