Would you listen to The Creative Thinker's Toolkit again? Why?
Yes i would. There was a lot of good material covered in making creativity a strategic habit and not just something you stumble upon in this book, so much that i feel it would be beneficial to let the concepts set in then revisit.
What did you like best about this story?
The repetition and explanation. To most this is the thing they dislike the most but for me the repetition seems to drive home the concepts and their importance in the process. The examples giving with repetition i feel is more for the subconscious mind and only aids in helping the reader get the most out of the book.
Which scene was your favorite?
His explanation of the fundamentals strengths of creative people i found most memorable. Everyone is strong in one of these it seems and he points out that you should use the tools to aid you in the areas your not strong in to compliment the strength.
What did you learn from The Creative Thinker's Toolkit that you would use in your daily life?
I've been reading Creativity books for a while and i would say i learned that you can develop your creativity with enough effort. Like most books, they point out that with enough work you can be good at anything. Well this books aids the business minded individuals with tools to use in developing techniques to become more creative. I love how the Professors primary focus is to keep you thinking Laterally instead of vertically which is something i would use in my daily life.
Any additional comments?
It's a good book. I can see why most would disapprove of the format of the lectures and even the delivery of examples. Only thing i can say in addition is that remember this is just one of the many approaches to creativity. I wouldn't discount it because of the presentation of the content but the quality of the content in relationship to your goals.

One of my top 25 and I've listened to hundreds.
Any additional comments?
I really enjoyed the approach, structure, and content of this series of lectures and I've continued to think about and apply many of the lectures well after I've listened. Several times I stopped and took notes while listening. There were some odd pauses in the narration, but that's OK because the content was so great!

The book itself is a real idea generator. Worth 6 stars if I could give it.
