Conquering the Chaos of Creativity A Complete Guide to Creative Problem-Solving for Everyone by Doug Patton
Doug Patton was inspired by his three professors at university so he combined their ways of solving problems into one integrated system, which he has used several times himself. This involves making a problem statement, brain-storming, flow mapping, and other processes to arrive at solutions. He provides a step-by-step account of how this is done, and gives examples of how he has used it in the past. I found this part of the book fairly involved.
However, I found the sections on ways to improve creativity, such as visual immersion and creative immersion, easier to understand. His suggestions for 'waking up' and regaining motivation and creativity are also very useful. I was pleased to note that Patton suggests skimming his book, and finding ideas which resonate.
This is an inspirational book, which will help anyone become more creative, and apply their creativity to problem-solving.
