Inspired: Understanding Creativity: A Journey Through Art, Science, and the Soul

We rated this book:


Have you ever wondered what it takes to be creative? Or if anyone can be creative and not just those with unique talents? You are not alone. Matt Richtel has been wondering the same thing, so he set out to study what it means to be creative. As a result, Inspired Understanding Creativity takes an in-depth look at what’s involved in our ability to create. By looking at research, case studies, and interviewing scientists and creative types such as musicians, artists, and authors, he’s come up with some exciting ideas about the human condition.

He suggests that we can all be creative if we let our minds wander more and overcome those doubts that often plague us and prevent us from showing our authentic selves. The one that can sometimes have “out of the box” ideas or create solutions to problems no one has seen before. Being creative to Richtel is not about being intelligent. Although that might help, he feels it’s more about being open to perceiving things and the willingness to open up to something new.

If that sounds interesting, you will not be disappointed in this book. It’s well researched and infused with a sense of humor, making it a highly interesting read.
