In this mind-expanding work, physicist Amit Goswami, Ph.D., explores the world of human creativity—the ultimate source of joy and fulfillment—through the lens of quantum physics, and offers up a unique way to nurture and enhance your own creativity.     According to quantum physics, reality occurs on two levels: possibility and actuality. Goswami uses this same duality to explore what he calls “quantum thinking,” which focuses on two levels of thinking—the conscious mind of actuality and the unconscious mind of possibility. He then poses questions that probe the wellspring of creation that exists in each of us. What is creativity? Can anyone be creative? What kinds of creativity are there? And through this inquiry, he lays out a guidebook for understanding the power of the mind to access creativity in a whole new way.       Combining the art of creativity with the objectivity of science, Quantum Creativity uses empirical data to support this new method of thinking and outlines how to harness our innate abilities in order to live more creatively. In short, Goswami teaches you how to think quantum to be creative.

My Thoughts

Well… this one was a bit much for me. I enjoyed the idea of it immensely bet the execution of the book just didn’t work as well in the beginning.

Firstly, I am a very creative person but I don’t understand physics. I was hoping that this would bring physics into my layman world and introduce me to a fascinating, albeit very difficult to understand realm.

The second part, however, really picked up with the more creative side of things and I was able to understand so much more. So, not all of this is filled with jargon, a lot of it yes, but if you can get through that portion then you’ll love the second.

I think I’m going to have to re-read this a few times to fully understand everything but from a first time read point of view it was not horrible, just filled with physics jargon.

I think if you have an inkling of an idea about physics then this would be extremely fun to read but for those like me that have no real idea, it was just way over my head for quite a bit of it. But don’t let that stop you, if you are creative and are curious about this, I do recommend!
