Reseña del editor
In this provocative collection of essays, an interdisciplinary group of eminent thinkers and writers offer their thoughts on how embracing creativity - tapping into the ""originality of everyday life"" - can lead to improved physical and mental health, to new ways of thinking, of experiencing the world and ourselves. They show how creativity can refine our views of human nature at an individual and societal level and, ultimately, change our paradigms for survival - and for flourishing - in a world fraught with urgent challenges.

I agree. I felt just as creative when I was improvising a tool to pull up wall-to-wall carpets during remodeling as I did when I was writing a poem. The most unexpected situations call for creativity. A costumer for the San Francisco Opera was explaining what his work is like. He described the occasional crisis in his business - a cleaning fluid ruins the tenor's waistcoat the day before opening, the soprano is ill today and the understudy is three sizes smaller -- and how they solve the problem on the spot.
This is not just a frivolous viewpoint held by liberal-arts types. A survey by IBM of 1500 CEOs in May, 2010, found that of all the qualities they look for in a prospective employee, the highest-ranked was creativity. I was reminded of the Apollo 13 explosion and the creativity of the engineers on the ground who had to design an entire new set of survival mechanisms to rescue lost astronauts - instantly! So developing and cultivating your own creativity can be rewarding in many ways.
This book is for people who are seriously interested in knowing what researchers have discovered about human creativity - what it is, what supports it, its role in our evolution, and how creativity can help us solve our most pressing problems. Thirteen essays by experts in creativity give solid scholarly information about the field. The last essay integrates the book and suggests specific benefits of setting aside the notion that "I'm not creative" and welcoming creativity into your life.
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.
Which brings me to another strength of the book: It is accessible to a non-psychologist like myself. It has a minimum of jargon, a fine bibliography, and lucid style.
