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.

I love Questlove and had no idea I would be getting a kick in the seat of pants along with this audio book. It's the first time I have read or listened to anything "inspirational" that gave me tools to create that I didn't know I had. The little exercises he uses to get the mind out of a rut where exactly what I needed! From breaking down how to define creativity, and exercises to get the mind working, I found this book motivating and entertaining.
