Imagine: How Creativity Works by Jonah Lehrer (2012)
I got a lot out of this book about the creative process but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the controversy surrounding the author’s lack of accuracy on some things he included as factual.
And here’s an opinion on that, which I share:
“The best way to think about Imagine is as a collection of interesting stories and studies to ponder and research further. Use it as a source of inspiration, but make your own careful choices about whether to believe what it says about the science of creativity.” Christopher Chabris (a psychology professor at Union College and a co-author, with Daniel Simons, of The Invisible Gorilla, and Other Ways Our Intuitions Deceive Us)
