I recommend this as a well written reference book, to those who have a serious interest in brain hemisphere asymmetry research, from a Cognitive Neuroscience perspective. It covers a diversity of topics, divided into seven parts:
The Discovery of Asymmetry: Clues from the Clinic. Exploring Asymmetry in the Normal Brain. Handedness, Sex and the Brain. From the Clinic to the Laboratory: Integrating Neuropsychology and Neuroimaging. The Evolution and Development of Asymmetry. Pathology and Asymmetry. Hypotheses and Speculation: Beyond the Data.
Serious Play: How the World's Best Companies Simul&hellip by Michael  D Schrage

Schrage makes clear that there is much more value to prototypes and simulations than learning about the developing concept. The prototypes and simulations can also teach us about the development of the designers involved. Using a mixture of Design and IT case studies the book puts forward a sound argument for making more use of prototyping and simulations, to improve quality and success.

This book develops the context for creativity of groups, discussing situations and types of individuals who may influence the group dynamics. Psychological and environmental issues are discussed in relation to both positive and negative influences upon group creativity and the divergent and convergent stages in the developmental process. Case studies include IDEO and Nissan Design International.
