The secrets of creative thinking by a lecturer at the world-famous St. Martin’s College of Art who has spent a lifetime researching innovative thinkers.

The Art of Creative Thinking reveals how we can transform ourselves, our businesses, and our society through a deeper understanding of human creativity. Rod Judkins, of the world-famous St. Martin’s College of Art, has studied successful creative thinkers from every walk of life throughout history. Drawing on an extraordinary range of reference points – from the Dada manifesto to Nobel Prize-winning economists, from Andy Warhol’s studio to Einstein’s desk – he distills a lifetime’s expertise into a succinct, surprising book that will inspire you to think more confidently and creatively.

You’ll realise why you should be happy when your train is cancelled; meet the most successful class in educational history (in which every single student won a Nobel prize); discover why graphic nudity during public speaking can be both a hindrance and surprisingly persuasive; and learn why, in the 21st century, it’s technically illegal to be as good as Michelangelo.

Be stubborn about compromise. Plan to have more accidents. Be mature enough to be childish. Contradict yourself more often. Discover the art of creative thinking.

From the publishers of the international best-seller The Art of Thinking Clearly

Stirring the imagination Interesting and thought-provoking book, which is about … well, exactly what the title says. Each short chapter can be dipped into at random, each has suggestions of what to seek out next within the text (which you can, of course, disregard). My cavils, such as they are, are that some of the topics and content I have found in other books on the same subject (but maybe I’ve read too many books on creativity instead of just having a bash and DOING it), and the illustrations I found less than…
