Creative Acts For Curious People Reviews

Creative Acts for Curious People is a delightful, compelling book that offers a dazzling array of practical, thoughtful exercises designed to spark creativity, help solve problems, foster connection, and make our lives better * Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author and host of the Happier podcast *
Mastering the skills of creativity, inventiveness, and improvisation may seem to be out of reach, but not if you are brave enough to read this extraordinary book. With memorable illustrations and compelling exercises, Creative Acts for Curious People clearly lays out practical ways to overcome any obstacle * Francesca Gino, Harvard Business School professor and bestselling author of Rebel Talent *
Attending classes at the d.school changed my life. I learned that to build empathy and creativity, you have to break out of habits and patterns to see the world in new ways. This book is packed end to end with ways to do just that by taking any part of the design process to a new level, be it in the initial need-finding stage or deep into the execution phase. The illustrations are great too! * Mike Krieger, co-founder of Instagram *
I've seen firsthand how the d.school thinks about creativity and design. Creative Acts for Curious Peoplemakes the genius of Sarah Stein Greenberg and the d.school available and accessible to everyone. The experiences inside this book teach both the hard and soft skills that we all need to navigate today's world with agility, resilience, and imagination * Lorraine Twohill, chief marketing officer at Google *
Talent and intelligence are universal, but resources and opportunities are not. This book offers everyone what I experienced at the d.school-the realization that when you believe in your own creativity and support people in cultivating their own, together we can create a new future * Michael Tubbs, former mayor of Stockton, California, and founder of Mayors for a Guaranteed Income *
