samskivert: Creativity (2)

25 December 2004

An interesting work in spite of the author’s lack of pizazz. Having thoroughly failed to achieve a state of flow while reading the author’s previous work, Flow, I was reluctant to pick up another of his volumes. However, the promise of lengthy quotes from the 100-plus creative interviewees gave me hope that Csikszentmihalyi’s dry prose would be frequently interrupted by amusing anecdotes, and indeed it was. That said, neither he nor they had anything terribly surprising to say.
