In Creative Quest, Questlove synthesizes all the creative philosophies, lessons, and stories he's heard from the many creators and collaborators in his life, and reflects on his own experience, to advise listeners and fans on how to consider creativity and where to find it. He addresses many topics - what it means to be creative, how to find a mentor and serve as an apprentice, the wisdom of maintaining a creative network, coping with critics and the foibles of success, and the specific pitfalls of contemporary culture.

Hey, yeah first time reviewer yada yada
This book deserves the full five star, Questlove might not put full weight in the star ratings but he deserves them.
First off he read it, you might not think that’s a big deal but means more to me coming from him. It’s read well and at great quality
The content is superb, I’m not a new guy just getting into the creative world, so many of the concepts and ideas I’ve come across from one mentor or another, but he has put them together for you right up front with stories and experience to back them. I certainly wish I had all of this years ago! And I hope others can take a listen, learn and grow from it as well.
Keep up the great work Questlove, now off to find more if your books!
