REVIEW

Creative Thinkering is eye-opening and interesting as it is technical and deep. In its 230 pages there are numerous techniques on how to expand your mind into a new way of thinking. There are many techniques on how to learn to think outside the box and in a new refreshing ways. It is not direct business advice and some may find it a tad bit technical, but if you can grasp the lessons you can learn how to solve many issues you may run into in the business world that may not necessarily be text book problems. The book teaches readers how to embrace new ideas and to think critically. There are great anecdotes which provide examples on how pioneers thought creatively to bring change into the arts, business and many other industries.
