Reviews

"A provocative and unique contribution to the field of creativity studies. If you're interested in creativity, keep this book close at hand. I know I will!" - Ronald A. Beghetto, Editor of the Journal of Creative Behavior, Professor of Educational Psychology, University of Connecticut, USA

"One of the biggest challenges facing creativity researchers is the lack of a common language across fields. People in business, psychology, and education study very similar issues but are often unaware of related work. It is easy to switch terms between creativity, imagination, and innovation, but a real solution requires more work. What this essential volume does is to explore core ideas (such as language or memory or power) that span fields and disciplines and discuss how they relate to creativity. This book is not just for people interested in creativity research – it is for anyone interested in how science can grow and evolve."  - James C. Kaufman, Professor of Educational Psychology, University of Connecticut, USA
