Architect Reinholdt has produced a very relevant material which rounded up in a neat way most of my similar experiences as an architect practicing in a wired global world. I would recommend this and his other works to my colleagues and it has a special referential value to crafting and updating our architecture curriculum to empower architects in becoming the entrepreneur that they should be.
Although his context of practice is in US, the overall content will resonate to today's architects especially the mellenials who are more open to the digital and online world. Overall impression, wickedly great writing.

In a fascinating tour of creativity and the brain, Nancy Andreasen, professor of psychiatry at the University of Iowa and the winner of the National Medal of Science, explores how the human brain achieves creative breakthroughs--in art, literature, music, and science--the role of genes and environment, extraordinary creativity vs. ordinary creativity, and the question of genius and insanity.

As an architect, musician and many other things, this book was an instant interest to me and the content versus its cost is a real treat. I am eager to get a hold of the unabridged version. Well structured and easy to understand plus very practical exercises to promote a culture of creative thinking and habits. I recommend this book to people who wants to know what is behind creative people or their proficiency to be creative and to those who wants to discover or awaken their inborn capacities in any or every field humans could excel.

  • Why Are You Atheists So Angry?

Why are atheists angry? Is it because they're selfish, joyless, lacking in meaning, and alienated from God? Or is it because they have legitimate reasons to be angry - and are ready to do something about it? Armed with passionate outrage, absurdist humor, and calm intelligence, popular blogger Greta Christina makes a powerful case for outspoken atheist activism, and explains the empathy and justice that drive it. This accessible, personal, down-to-earth book speaks not only to atheists, but also to believers who want to understand the so-called new atheism.

Slick Arguments from atheist activists, title is deceptively brilliant as I got the intent wrong the first time I saw it. The content is profoundly economized to make the point. I would recommend this to anyone disturbed or a scholar of things about theism and atheism.
