Summary
Imagine debuts at Number 1 on the New York Times Best Seller List Creativity: It’s singing the song that has never been sung and solving the problem that seems impossible. It’s the free verse poem and the mathematical equation, the abstract painter and the patient inventor. It’s the ability to see the world as it is, and then to imagine how it might be. Jonah Lehrer is on a mission to unlock the mysteries of creativity and invention, starting at the source: inside our head. Discover why humans are the creative species, where original ideas come from and how we can learn to generate more of them. Leaping agilely from anecdotes to scientific theories, from Bob Dylan to modernist furniture design and from the benefits of office ping-pong tables to how magicians come up with new tricks, Imagine brings clarity and insight to the most mysterious function of our brain—creativity. ‘Jonah Lehrer’s new book confirms what his fans have known all along—that he knows more about science than a lot of scientists and more about writing than a lot of writers.’ Malcolm Gladwell
Summary
After the author admitted to fabricating some of the quotes from Bob Dylan in this book, the publisher recalled this book, removing it from shelves nationwide--[note from NoveList Staff]. Annotation: "New York Times"-bestselling author Lehrer ("How We Decide") introduces readers to musicians, graphic artists, poets, and bartenders to show how they can use science to be more imaginative and make their cities, their companies, and their culture more creative
