According to the latest scientific research, anyone can be creative. You just have to know how to think creatively, which involves taking a more imaginative approach to the challenges we all face. Learn how to wield the same research-based tools that today's creative people use and tap into your inner creative thinker with Professor Puccio's engaging 24-lecture series that takes you step-by-step through the creative-thinking process.
You'll get a solid introduction to the four major stages of creative problem solving, one of the most effective methods used in creativity training around the world. Just like today's creative geniuses, you'll learn how to approach professional and personal challenges by clarifying your obstacles, ideating potential solutions, developing the ones that are workable, and implementing them in the real world.
You'll also learn how to wield the tools of the creative trade with the aid of simple exercises, in-studio demonstrations, hypothetical scenarios, and more. These powerful tools include everything from tapping into the power of brainwriting (an alternative take on brainstorming) to the effective use of How-How diagrams (which help you develop concrete action steps).
Whether you want to overcome writer's block, solve a complex business problem, or figure out the best way to resolve a tense argument, this series will give you everything you need so that when other people are dodging challenges, you're uncovering the hidden opportunities they'll have missed.

This question does not really apply. However I would point out that the narrative was a little tough to listen to for long periods. It's 24 lectures and the narrative starts sounding like William Shatner is delivering it. The pauses and drawn out words were tough to take.
Overall good lectures. Very comprehensive. I think the delivery was the downside for me.
Yes, I think so
The concept of creativity the author analyses and provide into his perspective
No. This is the first time
The concepts and the methodology to boost creativity in an individual and team work
It is a very informative and formative book
I'm a web developer from Sydney, Australia who loves every opportunity to learn something new. Audible is perfect for this!
The Great Courses is a pretty neat series, however the clapping at the start and end of every chapter drives me nuts.
None in particular as it was a non-fiction rather than story book.
I liked quite a few of the stories told in the audio book, he uses examples well and I think overall the chapters with examples and stories drew me in a lot more. They'd all be my favourite.
I felt it did drag on a bit but I did gain some useful insights into directing my creativity better.
Gotta say, Professor Gerard Puccio's voice sounded like I was listening to Vince Vaughn mixed with a bit of Barack Obama teach me about creativity :P
The book inspires to create, it gives motivation to keep trying, to keep going.
I don't understand why lecturer repeated the same thoughts more than twice in his lectures.
