This book was a total disappointment. I have never written a review online before, but if I can stop someone from buying this series I will feel like I've saved someone their hard-earned dollars. The subtitle says 'Fun Activities for Jumpstarting Innovation'. It should have said 'Invent your own games because we don't have any good ones to tell you about'. At least half the games were not games at all, but instructions for the participants to CREATE THEIR OWN GAMES!!!!! I COULD HAVE DONE THAT! One after the other are worded as follows: 'Participants design and carry out their own exercise to demonstrate the importance of _____ for the creative process' -- (insert chapter topic in the blank). Sorry, that doesn't help me at all. STAY AWAY!
