    Story
    (19)

    In a fascinating tour of creativity and the brain, Nancy Andreasen, professor of psychiatry at the University of Iowa and the winner of the National Medal of Science, explores how the human brain achieves creative breakthroughs--in art, literature, music, and science--the role of genes and environment, extraordinary creativity vs. ordinary creativity, and the question of genius and insanity.

    William says: "Well written history of creativity"
    "Nothing new so I stopped listening"
    Overall

    I stopped listening after the first three chapters because I hadn't learned anything new. Most the material covered there had been written about many times in the past, including the profile of the creative types and the introspective reports on creativity from Morart and others. I was hoping for something new, but didn't find it before I gave up.
