Filled with research-based techniques for expanding creativity and increasing productivity.
This provocative book reveals why sitting in front of a light box can increase your creativity more than listening to a Bach concerto as example. The author Shelley H. Carson, a Harvard psychologist, explains that creativity isn't something only scientists, investors, artists, writers, and musicians enjoy; in fact, all of us use our creative brains every day at home and at work. Each of us has the ability to increase our mental functioning and creativity by learning to move flexibly among several brain states.
Explains seven brain states or "brainsets" and their functions as related to creativity, productivity, and innovation. These include Connect, Reason, Envision, Absorb, Transform, Evaluate, and Stream brainsets.
Provides quizzes, exercises, and self-tests to activate each of these seven brainsets to unlock our maximum creativity.
This book is a Harvard Health Publication that offers helpful suggestions that can be applied in both your personal and professional life.

Most of it is fluff
Book on creativity with robotic narration
The subject is one as a psychologist, that I am highly interested in. However due to the narration, I don't know who would enjoy this book.
I couldn't listen as this narration was the most robotic I have ever heard in an audiobook, Unlike other audiobooks that I enjoy listening to each time I tried to listen I couldn't go past about five minutes due to the narration.
How ironic that a book on creativity is narrated by someone who sounds like they are trying to emulate a synthesized voice!
I'd like to see a place where book narrators are rated along with authors
