    From famed manager Terry Francona, a lively, unvarnished narrative of his tenure with the storied Boston Red Sox... From 2004 to 2011, Terry Francona managed the Boston Red Sox, the most talked-about, scrutinized team in all of sports. In Francona the legendary manager opens up for the first time about his eight years there, as they went from cursed franchise to one of the most successful and profitable in baseball history. He takes listeners inside the rarefied world of a 21st-century clubhouse.

    Story
    (539)

    From the best-selling author of How We Decide comes a sparkling and revelatory look at the new science of creativity. Shattering the myth of muses, higher powers, even creative “types”, Jonah Lehrer demonstrates that creativity is not a single gift possessed by the lucky few. It’s a variety of distinct thought processes that we can all learn to use more effectively. Lehrer reveals the importance of embracing the rut, thinking like a child, daydreaming productively, and adopting an outsider’s perspective.

    If you could sum up Imagine in three words, what would they be?

    Enlightening, interesting, informative


    Would you recommend Imagine to your friends? Why or why not?

    Probably not


    What about Jonah Lehrer’s performance did you like?

    His origins of products, and methodology of analyzing the way dreams are imagined and accomplished.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Progression diminished. Very interesting and informative in the beginning, but very technical and too many comparisons toward the end. Expected more along the way for personal improvement by personal accomplishment and how to attain it, rather than so many large corporation comparisons.
