    1. I learned about this book from an article on Brain Pickings (brainpickings/index). It's a short book that is aimed primarily at teachers, but has applications to any field of creativity.It was interesting in terms of its creativity-enhancing exercises and ideas (James Webb Young's book on producing ideas, and Brian Eno's Oblique Strategies come up a few times), and also for its funny, passionate and provocative tone.Here are three passages I highlighted:If you do things the same way as everyone [...]

    2. Some nice tips and nuggets of perspective on the idea of creativity. Not enough good content to recommend a buy, and this is really, in the end, geared toward educators, so more than 50% of the content is almost irrelevant to non-educators (you really have to fish for its applicability outside of the classroom).

    3. Great quick read about motivating education to be more whole body and dramatic. Sounds simple common sense but some of the ideas in this book could profound help out education system in America especially.

    4. Absolutely interesting. Useful? Not as much, but I would put it with "This is where the chairs go" as a go-to for creatively engaging a group, either as a regularly meeting committee, or as a one-off convening.

    5. encouragingA book achieves greatness read at the right time. This was the right time. Cool references, great writing. I took notes.
