One good thing about a cross-country flight? I got to read The Riddle: Where Ideas Come From and How to Have Better Ones in one sitting. Very interesting stuff.
Is it possible to improve your creative edge? The central premise of The Riddle is that we can not only understand how people have new ideas…but can also improve creativity by practicing "the five precursors that appear to be the most effective at inspiring creative insight: curiosity, constraints, conventions, connections, and codes (p. 70)."
Does author Andrew Razeghi prove that creativity can be gamed? I’m not sure. I am sure that the exercises at the end of each chapter will help develop the muscles we need in order to do more than simply try to "think outside the box." Want to take a look for yourself?
