Description du produit

Revue de presse

“Although the benefits of this study to scholars are obvious, this thought-provoking mixture of scholarly and colloquial will enlighten inquisitive general readers, too.” (Library Journal (starred review))

“Accessible and enjoyable reading.” (Washington Times)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The classic study of the creative process from the national bestselling author of Flow

creativity is about capturing those moments that make life worth living. Legendary psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi reveals what leads to these moments—be it the excitement of the artist at the easel or the scientist in the lab—so that this knowledge can be used to enrich people's lives. Drawing on nearly one hundred interviews with exceptional people, from biologists and physicists, to politicians and business leaders, to poets and artists, as well as his thirty years of research on the subject, Csikszentmihalyi uses his famous flow theory to explore the creative process. He discusses such ideas as why creative individuals are often seen as selfish and arrogant, and why the "tortured genius" is largely a myth. Most important, he explains why creativity needs to be cultivated and is necessary for the future of our country, if not the world.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 No staggering geniuses in these pages 18 juin 2016
Par Michael Tapp - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow really blew my mind and I have been eager to read Creativity for a long time. This is not a “How to be Creative” book. This book examines the psychology of creativity and reads almost like a textbook. It’s not an easy read but there are some valuable takeaways for people from any background who want to think more creatively. I was also surprised that he focused more on creative people in the sciences than the arts. If you are going to read one of Csikszentmihalyi’s books I recommend reading Flow; Creativity is bonus material.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A decent read 26 juin 2015
Par Old Observer - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
A good book, interesting and readable, especially the first part. He offers large chunks of interviews with accomplished persons in a variety of occupations. But overall the analysis doesn't persuade. Creativity is such an elusive phenomenon, beyond the obvious that is producing a novel and useful idea or product, it means different things in different domains: art, war, advertising (where it has long been a buzz word), education, crime, etc. But the author wants to come up with a universal definition and description. Soon he gets bogged down in contradiction and, at times, confusion, like is he talking big 'C' (transformation) or little 'c' (innovation) in the jargon of the trade). And toward the end of the book he becomes positively preachy so to offer readers a technique to induce their creativity. If you want to understand creativity, better to focus on particular lines of work, not try something this grand -- at least not yet until we know more about the particular.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wise and Complete 23 février 2015
Par Judith R. Hert - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I've read a lot of books, too many, on creativity, and this is by far the best, the most complete, the most interesting. The idea that creativity comes out of immersion in a domain or field seems absolutely right and the idea missed by so many other writers. I'm a writer and a painter and I've learned that I'm not going to be any better than the work I've come to know and love, that I have to live in that work. If you want to be a better string player, play with a better ensemble. In many ways a creative person is someone who is in a conversation with what has come before, with work that excites her, teaches her, challenges her. This book makes that plain. But he has other insights as well, especially about the creative personality, the interesting dichotomies. Just read the book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I absolutely loved this book. 10 mai 2016
Par Brian Johnson - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
“This book is about creativity, based on histories of contemporary people who know about it firsthand. It starts with a description of what creativity is, it reviews the way creative people work and live, and it ends with ideas about how to make your life more like that of the creative exemplars I have studied. There are no simple solutions in these pages and a few unfamiliar ideas. The real story of creativity is more difficult and strange than many overly optimistic accounts have claimed. For one thing, as I will try to show, an idea or product that deserves the label ‘creative’ arises from the synergy of many sources and not only from the mind of a single person. It is easier to enhance creativity by changing conditions in the environment than by trying to make people think more creatively. And a genuinely creative accomplishment is almost never the result of a sudden insight, a lightbulb flashing on in the dark, but comes after years of hard work.”

~ Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi from Creativity

Creativity with a capital C—the type of Creativity that changes the world.

How can we go about cultivating it in our lives? That’s what this book is all about.

Our guide is Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi—one of the founders of the positive psychology movement. Csikszentmihalyi (pronounced “cheeks sent me high”) is a professor at Claremont Graduate University and the former Chair of the Department of Psychology at the University of Chicago who wrote the classic book Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience .

This book features the wisdom gained from over three decades of research along with over one hundred interviews with extraordinary people—from scientists and business leaders to artists and poets.

Warning: Although deeply insightful, it’s not an easy read. If you’re looking to understand creativity at a deeper level via one of the world’s leading (and legendary) psychologists then I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.

Here are some of my favorite Big Ideas:

1. What is Creativity - Domain + field + person.
2. Attention - + Being kind weird
3. Complexity - + Resolving dischotomies.
4. Rhythms - Your ideal days?
5. Creativity + Flow - The 9 elements

Well, there we go. That’s a super quick look at this great book. Time to get our flow on as we tap into our Creativity and optimize + actualize!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 interesting analysis of what 'being creative' really means 5 février 2013
Par pennyws - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This easy-to-read absorbing book is based on lengthy interviews with 91 creative individuals ranging from Nobel prize winners to artists to CEOs. Csikszentmihalyi starts by debunking the myth of 'the lone genius having a brilliant idea as if by magic' and defines three necessary ingredients for creativity ('with a capital "C"') - domain, field, and individual. Creativity must take place within a recognised domain (such as physics, painting and so forth); be recognised by experts in that domain (the field, although this may not happen in the individual's lifetime, eg, Van Gogh); and of course come from an individual, although he also adds the painstaking work that precedes and insight, the reality that all creativity builds on what has gone before, and the social elements of the creative process.

The book also offers supporting evidence from the lives of the 91 interviewed, which also provides interesting insights into their lives. In many ways, this book is a biography of the creative individual.

Also contains a chapter with quite practical guidance on how to live more creatively. Prescient advice for a book published in 1996 given the increasing profile creativity is getting in business and public life.

HIghly recommended, one of the most interesting learning experiences i have had in a long while!
