Two books that came up in conversation yesterday to help creatives:
(1) A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future
(2) Managing Creative People: Lessons in Leadership for the Ideas Economy
the first one I endorse wholeheartedly as it helps to deconstruct what constitutes "right brain" thinking and how making associations makes you smart. The second book I am really looking forward to. One of the other HOW Design Conference attendees, Briana Malaspino from Lodge Cast Iron suggested this book. She said it really helped her understand the creative mind set and foster better relationships in her group.
