Self Dev Winner: Creative Quest

Listening to Creative Quest for the first time was an awakening. Walking to the train from my apartment on an otherwise uneventful morning, I pressed play and found myself suddenly dreaming of the possibilities that creativity, collaboration, and the right combination of the two could bring. Questlove isn’t just a percussionist and co-founder of the Grammy Award-winning band The Roots (also known as the in-house performers on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon), he’s also a connoisseur of the arts, total foodie, and has collaborated with the likes of Jay-Z, D’Angelo, Erykah Badu, Al Green, Amy Winehouse, and John Legend. What makes Creative Quest stand out from every other self development title this year—beyond the inspirational nature of Questlove’s anecdotes and one-liners—is the delivery. Charming laughter, mellifluous melodies, and meditational interludes carry this narrative about how to be creative—everything you’d expect from a conversation with an artist.
