Inhaltsangabe

In a fascinating tour of creativity and the brain, Nancy Andreasen, professor of psychiatry at the University of Iowa and the winner of the National Medal of Science, explores how the human brain achieves creative breakthroughs--in art, literature, music, and science--the role of genes and environment, extraordinary creativity vs. ordinary creativity, and the question of genius and insanity.

She examines what extraordinary creators have said about creating and how their insights reflect particular qualities of creative people, and she includes her fascinating interview with the playwright Neil Simon, in which he described how his mind and brain work. This book offers insight into what creates the creative brain as well as advice to nurture creativity in both children and adults.

Stating the obvious

Some nice recap on the brain, however no mind puzzling new insight information:
- the Brain is „plastic“ and needs training, despite certain periods in life cannot be made undone if missed
- provide children with opportunities to diverse experiences
- be serious about keeping your own mind engaged
