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.

No matter what kind of creator you are, or even if you think you aren’t one at all, this audiobook will be an absolute joy from start to finish. Questlove is engaging and beautiful spoken, and really puts words to so many concepts you’ve probably attempted to understand but have never written down in any way. It’s beautiful, concise, researched, and cause for real thought and pause. It’s not a shitty self help book, it’s like a massively life changing conversation with a really damn smart friend.
