4.0 out of 5 stars Outstandingly readable study of madness and creativity., 17 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Strong Imagination: Madness, Creativity and Human Nature (Hardcover)
I'm not a scientist or psychologist/psychiatrist but happened on this book while browsing & began reading. Its main benefit is that unlike most scientific books it's very clear and easy to read. I can't comment on the scientific validity but it seems to me to be a very good summary of current thinking on the biology of psychosis and its relationship with creativity.

4.0 out of 5 stars madness abbreviated, 5 Feb. 2009

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very informative and descriptive book that draws on a lot of influences, to offer many links between creativity and mental illness tendencies. The terms and variety of subject matter make for a very intense read, which may not be accessible to people who do not enjoy scientific terms. The author enjoys the terms correlation and continuum.
