The Runaway Species is a deep-dive into the creative mind, a celebration of the human spirit, and a vision of how we can improve our future by understanding and embracing our ability to innovate. Composer Anthony Brandt and neurologist David Eagleman seek to discover what lies at the heart of humanity's ability - and drive - to create.
Examining hundreds of examples of human creativity, Brandt and Eagleman draw out what creative acts have in common and view them through the lens of cutting-edge neuroscience, uncovering the essential elements of this critical human ability and encouraging a more creative future for all of us.

great discovery, this app!
absolutely loved the voice of the narrator. perfect pitch, natural, fluid, clear, and yet expressive.
the story is great, the narrative well organized and easy to follow and to enjoy. the structure of the book is a bit repetitive and maybe a tad predictable (in spite of the title). I preferred "incognito" from the same author, but I don't know whether this is because I read it before this one. nonetheless, definitely worth reading and also listening!

creativity: Breaking, Blending, Bending.
Elegantly simple thesis, deconstructing the human creative process into three discrete, interrelated processes. If you like Pinker, Gladwell, Dawkins, Harari, then Runaway Species is required reading.
