Quantum Creativity: Think Quantum, Be Creative by Amit Goswami

When I came across this title, I was interested, because not only am I creative, I am also a fan of quantum physics and consciousness. The first half of this book attempts to explain quantum thinking in a way that the masses can understand; however, I think anyone who reads this book needs a very basic knowledge of the workings of quantum physics. It is not as basic as Dr. Goswami perceives it to be. I was able to follow most of the first half of the book because I have an interest in the topic and have read about it previously. I enjoyed the 2nd half of the book as it was less technical and spoke of creativity. I appreciated the parables Dr. Goswamishared to make the points he was making come alive. This is where the ‘lay person’ aspect of this book comes in. Once you get through all the technical stuff, this is where the book shines.

Not only does Dr. Goswami go into how quantum creativity works, he talks about how our creativity suffers. It is helpful to see what we are doing to block the flow. It is easier to know where to go when we know where we have been.

This is a three star read for me. The book was informative although it is not knew information for me. It is well written and good for those who want to learn more about this topic. Dr. Goswami is knowledgeable in this field and his work is important for our time.
