    There is a paradox. As children, most of us think we are highly creative; as adults many of us think we are not. What changes as children grow up? Organizations across the globe are competing in a world that is changing faster than ever. They say they need people who can think creatively, who are flexible and quick to adapt.

    Story

    I already knew that schools and other institutions discourage creativity. I bought this audiobook to get a better understanding of how this phenomenum works.
    His definition of creativiy is not original, and his points can all be found in other books with better explanations to them.
    It's OK to listen to this if you have nothing else. He does provide a few jokes and interesting stories.

    Oh, and I should mention that I've stopped listening to it an hour from the end.

  • The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature

    In The Blank Slate, Steven Pinker, one of the world's leading experts on language and the mind, explores the idea of human nature and its moral, emotional, and political colorings. With characteristic wit, lucidity, and insight, Pinker argues that the dogma that the mind has no innate traits, denies our common humanity and our individual preferences, replaces objective analyses of social problems with feel-good slogans, and distorts our understanding of politics, violence, parenting, and the arts.

    C. J. Hamilton says: "Instant classic"
    "Disapointing"

    Story

    This audiobook lacks structure. You don't quite know where it's going, and some issues are not takled as deeply as they should be. So once you're done, it feels like you've been to a 15 minute lecture.
    It's not bad, and worth listening to anyway. But it was disapointingly light in its problem raising.
