Creativity with a capital C—the type of Creativity that changes the world.
How can we go about cultivating it in our lives? That’s what this book is all about.
Our guide is —one of the founders of the positive psychology movement. Csikszentmihalyi (pronounced “cheeks sent me high”) is a professor at Claremont Graduate University and the former Chair of the Department of Psychology at the University of Chicago who wrote the classic book (see Notes).
This book features the wisdom gained from over three decades of research along with over one hundred interviews with extraordinary people—from scientists and business leaders to artists and poets.
