Book Title: The Creative Process: Reflections on the Invention of Art

Author: Brewster Ghiselin

Book Description:

This book is a survey of the creative process from the perspective of artists and scientists across different fields and points in time in history, including Albert Einstein, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Thomas Wolfe, Henry Miller and Carl Jung. The accounts contained within these pages are a tribute to the power of narrative. Each narrative contains the story of how each man, woman, scholar, musician, writer, etc. recognizes inspiration, acts on the inspiration, and develops original ideas to their fullest potential. This book inspired both my professional interest in narrative communication and my personal goals for creativity.
