James C. Kaufman does a great job at defining what creativity is in society as well as the classroom. In the beginning he does a good job at keeping the readers attention. After a while I feel that the book gets a little redundant. Although it may seem redundant James C. Kaufman is very effective while he has the readers attention. He also brings up a great question in the book: Should creativity be a more important factor when applying to college?
