4.0 su 5 stelle No staggering geniuses in these pages 18 giugno 2016
Di Michael Tapp - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow really blew my mind and I have been eager to read Creativity for a long time. This is not a “How to be Creative” book. This book examines the psychology of creativity and reads almost like a textbook. It’s not an easy read but there are some valuable takeaways for people from any background who want to think more creatively. I was also surprised that he focused more on creative people in the sciences than the arts. If you are going to read one of Csikszentmihalyi’s books I recommend reading Flow; Creativity is bonus material.

3.0 su 5 stelle A decent read 26 giugno 2015
Di Old Observer - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
A good book, interesting and readable, especially the first part. He offers large chunks of interviews with accomplished persons in a variety of occupations. But overall the analysis doesn't persuade. Creativity is such an elusive phenomenon, beyond the obvious that is producing a novel and useful idea or product, it means different things in different domains: art, war, advertising (where it has long been a buzz word), education, crime, etc. But the author wants to come up with a universal definition and description. Soon he gets bogged down in contradiction and, at times, confusion, like is he talking big 'C' (transformation) or little 'c' (innovation) in the jargon of the trade). And toward the end of the book he becomes positively preachy so to offer readers a technique to induce their creativity. If you want to understand creativity, better to focus on particular lines of work, not try something this grand -- at least not yet until we know more about the particular.

5.0 su 5 stelle I absolutely loved this book. 10 maggio 2016
Di Brian Johnson - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
“This book is about creativity, based on histories of contemporary people who know about it firsthand. It starts with a description of what creativity is, it reviews the way creative people work and live, and it ends with ideas about how to make your life more like that of the creative exemplars I have studied. There are no simple solutions in these pages and a few unfamiliar ideas. The real story of creativity is more difficult and strange than many overly optimistic accounts have claimed. For one thing, as I will try to show, an idea or product that deserves the label ‘creative’ arises from the synergy of many sources and not only from the mind of a single person. It is easier to enhance creativity by changing conditions in the environment than by trying to make people think more creatively. And a genuinely creative accomplishment is almost never the result of a sudden insight, a lightbulb flashing on in the dark, but comes after years of hard work.”

~ Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi from Creativity

Creativity with a capital C—the type of Creativity that changes the world.

How can we go about cultivating it in our lives? That’s what this book is all about.

Our guide is Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi—one of the founders of the positive psychology movement. Csikszentmihalyi (pronounced “cheeks sent me high”) is a professor at Claremont Graduate University and the former Chair of the Department of Psychology at the University of Chicago who wrote the classic book Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience .

This book features the wisdom gained from over three decades of research along with over one hundred interviews with extraordinary people—from scientists and business leaders to artists and poets.

Warning: Although deeply insightful, it’s not an easy read. If you’re looking to understand creativity at a deeper level via one of the world’s leading (and legendary) psychologists then I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.

Here are some of my favorite Big Ideas:

1. What is Creativity - Domain + field + person.
2. Attention - + Being kind weird
3. Complexity - + Resolving dischotomies.
4. Rhythms - Your ideal days?
5. Creativity + Flow - The 9 elements

Well, there we go. That’s a super quick look at this great book. Time to get our flow on as we tap into our Creativity and optimize + actualize!

5.0 su 5 stelle Wise and Complete 23 febbraio 2015
Di Judith R. Hert - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I've read a lot of books, too many, on creativity, and this is by far the best, the most complete, the most interesting. The idea that creativity comes out of immersion in a domain or field seems absolutely right and the idea missed by so many other writers. I'm a writer and a painter and I've learned that I'm not going to be any better than the work I've come to know and love, that I have to live in that work. If you want to be a better string player, play with a better ensemble. In many ways a creative person is someone who is in a conversation with what has come before, with work that excites her, teaches her, challenges her. This book makes that plain. But he has other insights as well, especially about the creative personality, the interesting dichotomies. Just read the book.

4.0 su 5 stelle Finally: A Book on Creativity That is NOT for Touchy-Feely Artist Types 14 settembre 2014
Di Diana Glyer - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I use "Creativity" as a textbook in a class that I teach about the creative process. It does a great job of exploding the myth that creativity is some kind of mystical experience, abundant outpouring of talent, innate genius, or uncontrollable impulse. Everyone is creative; everyone can increase their creativity. This is worth knowing because being creativity benefits every profession. It's not just for poets and painters: think about the way that thinking-outside-the-box is the key to success for business start-ups, technology, law, science, and politics. Csikszentmihalyi can be a bit dry, but the substantial content of this book and the practical implications of his research are PRICELESS.

Diana Glyer is the author of The Company They Keep: C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien as Writers in Community
