This is a remarkable book. Rarely do I come upon a book as useful and insightful as Everyday Creativity. Edited by Dr. Ruth Richards, Everyday Creativity once and for all frees us from the cultural myth that creativity is solely the province of a few rather than the fundamental craft of life it is meant to be. As Dr. Richards says: “Seen as a process, even a way of life, our everyday creativity offers whole new ways of thinking….” This book does exactly that – offers us new ways to think.
Richards, a national expert in the field of creativity, brilliantly collects and then weaves the work of colleagues from many disciplines into a tapestry of understanding. We see creativity from views as diverse as chaos theory and audience flow to spiritual balance and large scale learning patterns. Then, demonstrating what she is telling us, Richards uses her own creativity to summarize this diversity in her chapter “Twelve Potential Benefits of Living More Creatively”. With the clarity and richness of her summary we are handed a powerful tool with which we can honor and grow our own creativity.
This book should be a must read for anyone interested in understanding our most essential human nature.ادامه مطلب
