Worth every penny of it

I think even if you don't consider yourself as a creative person. The book will serve you well to understand the landscape of creativity and lay down a structure to harness your own as well as your teams/ organisation's creativity. Once you understand the core concepts, you can get creative and adapt it to your creative project or organisation. Information presented is quite dense and may require you to listen to it multiple times so don't forget to place and document bookmarks. Goodluck!
