4.0 out of 5 stars
A wonderful book on the pesky business of Creativity, 13 April 2012
The words 'creative' and 'creativity' are often over-used in our language so it's refreshing to come across Jurgen Wolfe's straightforward, optimistic, down to earth book on the subject. Nothing arty-farty or pretentious here; Wolfe is happy to combine tips on eating right and afternoon naps with guides to making mind maps, finding funding or even just creating a brilliantly different type of business card. Wolfe has combined a writing career with training as an NLP practitioner and hypnotherapist. It's an intriguing combination that blows a breath of fresh air through the sedentary and dare I say it, often isolated and bitter world of the solo artist, writer or entrepreneur. He's an American and he brings a breezy, "let's take a new look and solve this problem" approach from his side of the Atlantic. No moaning and groaning or grumbling defeatism here. No matter how you think you are stuck, Jurgen Wolfe probably has a fun way to get you unstuck. So why haven't I given it five stars? Well, I'm English after all and don't want to get too carried away....
