The Creative Spirit
This sumptuously illustrated volume is based on the PBS "Creative Spirit" television series, praised by the "Washington Post" as "thought-provoking and delightful" and hailed by the "New York Times" as "an example of creativity at work." This engaging book has a powerful mesage: creativity can be cultivated by anyone - by children and adults, by companies, by whole communities. How can you liberate the creative spirit within you and use it to improve the quality of your life? This book takes you inside the creative process to the realms of intuition and "flow" - where our efforts perfectly match the task at hand. It offers a series of practical exercises to strengthen your creativity and shake loose hidebound habits of thought. And it takes you around the world for inspirational stories of the creative spirit in action.
