A brilliant book written by two people -- an artist and a scientist -- about creativity. Their combined perspective makes for a very creative book about creativity. Some people don't like the book, I see from the other review giving it one star. I think it's much better than that. I read a lot, but don't give out five stars very often. This book deserves it.

Halfway through so far and love the thought-provoking examples, pictures, and perspectives on creativity relating to art and engineering. I feel a kinship with “blending” - maybe I use this most in my own pursuits... will keep reading to see what these guys have to say next about the “runaway species.”

A total waste - just collections of examples and naive attempts at generalizing. A middle school student might do just as well assembling the collection from internet searches. i expected more depth. Very disappointed. If you liked incognito and-or Sum you might approve.
