Recensioner i media

"Neuroscientists, until recently, shied away from the big questions--such as ''what is consciousness, '' ''what is abstract thinking, '' or (the topic of this book) ''what is creativity''--as being empirically unapproachable. Nancy Andreasen''s book comes as a welcome antidote to this inherent conservatism and shows us how creativity can be approached scientifically. In a market flooded with ''new age'' books on creativity, Dr. Andreasen''s meticulously researched contribution comes as a breath of fresh air."--V.S. Ramachandran, MD, Director of the Center for Brain and Cognition at the University of California-San Diego, and author of A Brief Tour of Human Consciousness
