    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.

    Would you try another book from Ken Robinson and/or John Lee?

    I would think twice about trying another book by either the author and/or the reader. The content was too lightweight and general and the reading did not capture the spirit of the author, his style, or humour.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator mispronounced too many words and also misunderstood the rhythm and stress of the author's speech style.


    Do you think Out of Our Minds needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, I'm afraid the content was too general to be engaging. It took a long time to develop towards the deeper ideas that emerged towards the latter sections of the book. Too much trivia and google-search facts in the early stages.


    Any additional comments?

    Quite frustrating if you appreciate that creativity is a serious topic that can be explored at depth. This was a popularised conception that actually clouded the subject as much as shed light on it. A missed opportunity at so many levels.
