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.

Creative Quest is a comprehensive and inspiring look into the creative process. Questlove guides the reader/listener with valuable insights — both his own and from others — that provoke self-reflection and new ideas. At the same time, he courageously exposes his own vulnerabilities, reminding us that even those we look to as role models or place upon pedestals are, themselves, imperfect. His approach is both humbling, and encouraging. You don’t need to be a “creator” to derive value from Creative Quest. We’re all creators in our own way. Questlove: simply, thank you for giving this to the world. It could not have come at a better time for my own personal creative quest!
