Great book 100 Creativity Ingredients: Everyone’s Playbook to Unlock Creativity By Pearl Zhu. Creative writing from a wide rаngе оf еxреriеnсеѕ...This iѕ a muѕt rеаd for everyone... Thе bооk was very hеlрful аnd I dоn't regret rеаding it. Basically, this is very interesting and it's eye-catching you would be interested in because the book kept my interest, and the whole write-up moved along quite well. I suspended everything I was doing to concentrate on this. The Author did a very great and awesome job because the style of writing was very clear and well understood. The book is very interesting because the book gave me incredible insight on what the word CREATIVE means. I enjoyed this book and would love to read it again. I read for the purpose of learning and I think I've learned from “100 Creativity Ingredients: Everyone’s Playbook to Unlock Creativity.” I love reading, so I've read a lot. The moment I started reading this book I couldn't put it down. So all the philosophy had me a little lost, and also a little interested in philosophy (a subject I never studied). I'm so glad I took a chance on something with so few reviews and read this! I know I’m VAST but reading this book I was able to discover more about myself. I read bits of this to the group of library faculty and staff that I supervise, and we had a great conversation about the book on how the author was able to put together a great book like this. I recommend this highly for anyone who works across industries as creativity become so important in today’s digital economy.
