Too often, companies and individuals assume that creativity and innovation are the domain of the "creative types." But two of the leading experts in innovation, design, and creativity on the planet show us that each and every one of us is creative. In an incredibly entertaining and inspiring narrative that draws on countless stories from their work at IDEO, the Stanford d.school, and with many of the world's top companies, David and Tom Kelley identify the principles and strategies that will allow us to tap into our creative potential in our work lives, and in our personal lives, and allow us to innovate in terms of how we approach and solve problems. It is a book that will help each of us be more productive and successful in our lives and in our careers.

If you want to be more creative… Do something!
I love the plain-speak style that the authors take in sharing their tips on how everyone can be more productive and successful in their personal and professional lives. This book came at the right time in my life because the time I spent in between jobs took a serious dig to my confidence. I have recently started to work again and find myself constantly remembering touching tidbits. Like how creativity translates to “natural” in Tibet. To be creative, you just need to let loose and be natural.
As other more ‘qualified’ reviewers have acclaimed, this book is a wonderful and touching collection of stories to inspire and entertain you as you tap into your creativity energy.
